Overview

At Biochemistry program at the Westminster College New Wilmington the first two years introduce students to the four basic types of chemistry—analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical—so they can make informed decisions about summer internships, research projects, and career goals. 

Freshman and sophomore students build confidence in their scientific knowledge while challenging and expanding their horizons. Juniors participate in a unique laboratory experience. 

Instead of standard “cookbook” experiments, students investigate and discover individually and in teams, proposing solutions to problems and presenting results. Along with this experimentation, students and faculty meet weekly to socialize and discuss ideas and issues in their field. 

In seminar, students develop, practice, and polish professional skills. Seniors conduct a Capstone experiment, playing off of previous investigations, and write a thesis that they present regionally or nationally. This course of study creates independent thinkers and collaborative workers.
