Chemistry is an Incredible Choice

Chemistry is everywhere! It was used to make the bottle for your water and the gasoline for your car. Chemistry results in the decomposition of your waste and guides the function of the cells in your body!

As a Chemistry student, you will study the composition, structure, and properties of substances, learn how they interact, see the transformations they undergo and discover how to put all of this information to good use. You will learn the composition of matter and how elements combine to form compounds. You will also use instrumentation to determine molecular properties to help you identify substances and to predict how reactions will produce new and useful compounds.


You Will Like Chemistry If...

♦ You are curious about the composition and transformation of matter at the most basic level
♦ You want to participate in research opportunities that allow you to apply your knowledge of Chemistry to real-world problems encountered in industry
♦ You want access to the latest in modern chemical instruments and computer applications
♦ You want to learn from great professors who enjoy teaching and have excellent communication skills


Can You Picture Yourself Here?

Can you picture putting your curiosity and creativity to work so that you can help the world solve current problems and plan for a better future?

A chemistry degree can help you make that happen. 

From food safety to pollution control, there are many careers that allow you to use what you will learn in chemistry to make a difference in this world.
  


We Can Help You Make it Happen!

♦ New Students, first complete the online application for admission to WSU.

♦ If you are just beginning, have questions about the university or general education classes, or are wondering which program of study to declare or what initial classes you should be taking, please contact the College of Science Advisor, Jane Stout. Click here for her contact information, location and hours.

♦ If you feel confident that you understand the lay of the (university) land, and are ready to declare a Chemistry program, you can make an appointment to meet with dept. chair, Dr. Laine Berghout. He'll answer your questions, get your program declared, help you with your schedule, and introduce you to your ongoing faculty advisor.
