Are you interested in a Chemistry Major?
Chemists are scientists who study the composition, structure and change of matter. They are often involved in the discovery or synthesis of new compounds and in the production of many consumer products: food additives, pharmaceuticals, plastics, etc.
Dr. Mohamed Ayoub (Chemistry) discusses an experiment with students.
If you are planning to major in chemistry or another major that requires multiple chemistry courses, you will spend your freshman and sophomore years at UW-Washington County studying the sciences, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, English composition and specific chemistry courses. Your junior and senior years at your transfer institution will be devoted in large part to specialized coursework in your major.
The labs at UW-WC are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments used in the separation and identification of chemical compounds. Instruments typically used by students include gas chromatographs, infrared spectrophotometers, and ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometers. Computers are at each lab station to assist in the acquisition and analysis of experimental data.
