As a student in the Chemistry program of Capital University, you'll get personal attention and laboratory-based in instruction. There will be about 30 students in your first-year chemistry course, and you'll have easy access to professors outside of class.
What you'll learn
Our Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has been approved by the American Chemical Society for the professional training of chemists, an honor earned by only about 20 percent of the colleges and universities in the United States. Unlike students at large universities, Capital students also have plenty of access to modern instrumentation beginning in their sophomore year. Spacious lab facilities are available in the Battelle Memorial Hall of Science and Nursing.
As a chemistry major, you'll study classical areas of physical, organic, inorganic, analytical and biochemistry. As you progress through the program, you'll be expected to demonstrate a proficiency in these classical areas, and to develop an understanding of the relationship between the natural sciences, the environment and the ethical issues facing us all.
Capital embraces high-impact teaching practices, like undergraduate research, internships and capstone projects, which are proven strategies for helping students learn and retain what they've learned. So you professors will encourage and mentor you in research as early as your first year at Capital.
Each senior chemistry major is expected to conduct laboratory, library and Internet research and to present his or her findings in either an oral or both an oral and written format. These technical presentations for students and faculty not only allow majors the opportunity for in-depth study, but also sharpen skills that are important in career advancement. The department has its own library with many of the current journals. Students also have online access to the immense data base of OhioLink and Chemical Abstracts Service.
Where you'll go
You'll also have the opportunity for internships at world-class, Columbus-based research facilities like Battelle, and Dow Corning, Eli Lilly and the Columbus Police Crime Lab. These internships will help you apply your chemical knowledge to practical, real-world problems, and help you enter the workforce or get into graduate school after you graduate. The record of Capital’s chemistry graduates is outstanding. More than 100 of our graduates have earned their doctorates in chemistry, while another 75 have completed work at the master’s level.
