About

Students entering the Forensic Chemistry Program at Washburn University come from diverse backgrounds and may apply their acquired chemical skills in equally diverse occupations over the span of their career. 

Overview

Consistent with the mission of the University and the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Chemistry is committed:

  • to provide a broad spectrum of undergraduate students with a supportive environment in which to develop the necessary understanding of chemical principles, and analytical and critical thinking skills,
  • to engage in scientific research,
  • to serve the scientific and local communities.

The Department of Chemistry at Washburn University  addresses this diversity by focusing on individual student interests and strengths through personal advising, small class sizes, individual instruction, hands-on experience with scientific instrumentation, intern appointments, and guided undergraduate forensic research. The Chemistry Department faculty is itself diverse and exemplifies commitment to learning and contributing by engaging in scientific research, collaborating with forensic scientists, presenting and publishing, as well as volunteering to improve the quality of living in the larger Topeka community.

Beginning courses are designed to give the student an awareness and understanding of scientific chemical principles and problems. Advanced courses in Forensic Chemistry are planned to meet the specialized needs of students interested in careers in forensic laboratories, which may include graduate studies.
