Overview

A popular major at Wofford, chemistry majors study the composition and properties of all matter, both organic and inorganic. 

The chemistry faculty has a diverse set of specializations and teach students in both general, introductory courses as well as heavily specialized upper division courses. 

As a chemistry major you’ll spend much of your time in lab, working with your lab partners and faculty members to conduct experiments and research and writing up your findings. 

Many chemistry majors find the individual attention they receive from faculty members as they conduct research together to be among the most valuable experience of their undergraduate careers.
