Thinking of Chemistry?


Hands-On Chemistry

Westminster's chemistry program trains you the way chemists actually work. You begin working in the lab in your first year. As a junior and senior chemistry major, you are collaborating with faculty members on real-life problems!

Career Choices

Westminster offers a flexible curriculum designed to meet your career goal, whether it is medicine, forensics, pharmaceuticals, education, industry, or research. We offer American Chemical Society (ACS) certified degrees in five tracks: professional chemist, forensic science, secondary education certification, pre-medical/dental, and 3-2 chemical engineering.

Exciting Opportunities

Our majors participate in paid summer reserach experiences at Westminster, major research universities, national labs, or abroad. Senior chemistry majors present their research at ACS National Meetings in New Orleans, Orlando, Denver, and Anaheim.
