Chemistry allows us to understand the way atoms and molecules behave and how those behaviors lead to everything we know and love. It's the study of matter and all of the changes that matter can undergo. Chemistry allows us to study things as large as the universe and as small as amino acids. Everything is chemistry. Chemistry is life, and life is chemistry. If you enjoy solving problems and understanding diverse phenomena from a molecular point of view, you will want to learn more about chemistry.

Introduction to the Department

The department's curriculum is designed for students interested in a career in chemistry and biochemistry, but also for those pursuing pre-medicine, biology, engineering, geology, and pre-law.

As an OWU chemistry student, you have the opportunity for hands-on learning experiences in well-equipped modern laboratories. You work closely with professors to develop the ability to design experiments, solve problems, analyze and interpret data, and reason quantitatively.

Students graduating with a major in chemistry from Ohio Wesleyan University have gone on to top graduate programs, leading medical schools, law school, and careers in industry, education, geology, and business.
