Overview

At Truman State University, you experience the best of both worlds — facilities you’d expect at a larger institution with access to professors you get at a smaller school. Magruder Hall has eight teaching labs, 10 research labs and four shared instrument facilities. Working alongside your professors, you gain hands-on experience with modern techniques and instrumentation.

Key facts:

  • Our research labs are designed so that you can work on your own projects and also see the work being done by others. You can also present your research results at regional and national scientific meetings and conferences, as well as the Student Research Conference held on campus.
  • At Truman, you start making connections for your future—from participating in professional internships to joining organizations like the student chapter of the American Chemical Society, Alpha Chi Sigma professional fraternity, and the American Medical Student Association.
  • Your broad exposure to the five fundamental  areas of Chemistry — organic, physical, analytical, inorganic and biological chemistry — prepares you for a wide range of careers, such as education, biochemistry, chemical engineering, health-related professions, and more.

Accreditation

The bachelor’s degree in chemistry is an American Chemical Society (ACS) accredited professional program.
