Chemistry

Chemistry majors at Wofford can choose between two tracks of study – one designed for students planning to pursue an advanced degree in chemistry or obtain a job as an industrial chemist and the other programmed for students planning to center a medical field. Wofford’s state-of-the-art laboratories provide excellent learning platforms.
