    About the Chemistry Program

    Chemistry is the study of matter, the material of the universe and its changes. A knowledge of chemical principles provides the groundwork for the intellectual consideration of the effect of chemistry on society.  Western’s chemistry department offers degree programs that are designed to prepare students for:

    (1) professional programs including medical school and pharmacy programs

    (2) careers as laboratory or forensic chemists

    (3) graduate study in pure or applied chemistry

    Combining a chemistry major with an appropriate minor prepares students for careers in fields such as biochemistry, oceanography, toxicology and in environmental and atmospheric science. You may choose from one of five degree tracks listed above to obtain an education focused on chemistry. Please click on the links above to see more detail about the individual track requirements.
