Chemistry Programs

The Chemistry Department offers a wide variety of majors, pre-professional pathways, and minors for undergraduate students. 

Five of our major programs meet the guidelines established and approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS). Graduates of these majors will be certified as professional chemists by ACS, which can be a great resumé booster when applying to jobs or graduate school.

Chemistry Teacher Programs

If you are passionate about teaching and chemistry, we have programs that are perfect for you. 

The Chemistry Department offers 2 teaching majors in partnership with the College of Education

Pre-Professional Pathways

The Chemistry Department advises students in several pre-professional sequences. 

These sequences are not degree programs. Rather, they are intended to prepare students for careers in medicine, veterinary work, dentistry, forensics (PDF), and more. 

Check out all the pre-professional pathways offered by WSU as well as the admission requirements for each pre-professional track (PDF).


We offer minors that can pair well with a variety of other majors:
