Chemistry Student Resources

WSU’s Chemistry Department offers multiple student resources. From clubs, research opportunities, to online resources, our department is here to support you. 

Campus Clubs & Organizations

There are many campus clubs and organizations that will give you the chance to learn outside of the classroom in a fun, friendly environment. 

Apply your studies and get involved through the Chemistry Club, Pre-Dental Club, Pre-Medical Club, Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), and more.

Research Opportunities

Chemistry students are encouraged to pursue research that aligns with their personal interests, academic studies, and career goals.

That’s why WSU offers a variety of chemistry research opportunities both on and off campus, all year long.


Our graduates have earned distinction in a diverse range of careers, including industrial research chemists, government agency heads, and college professors.

Many chemistry alumni have gone on to chemistry doctorate programs and professional schools, such as pharmacy and medical colleges.

Internships are an excellent way to prepare for graduate school, professional school, or a career in the chemical industry.
