Often referred to as the “central science” because of its role in connecting the physical and applied sciences, chemistry opens the doors to a variety of careers in forensic science, food science, pharmaceutical development, chemical engineering, and more.
By challenging our students through rigorous classes, from computational chemistry to biochemistry, we prepare our Chemistry majors for the next step toward graduate school, pre-health profession school, or any chemistry career. The breadth and flexibility of the Chemistry program allows all Chemistry and Biochemistry students to finely tune their degrees to best reach their goals.
Taylor’s Chemistry & Biochemistry department has a phenomenal success rate: a 95% placement rate into medical and pre-healthcare schools, a near-100% placement rate into graduate schools, and a 99% placement rate for direct entry into a chemistry career.
Taylor Chemistry students work in a state-of-the-art environment that encourages collaboration and scientific research and exploration. Unlike many large undergraduate chemistry programs, Taylor’s Chemistry classes allow students to work through the entire lab process, from initial tests to reaction and data analysis, rather than handing off work for graduate students to analyze. Our students work directly with our equipment and receive a full hands-on lab experience that sets them apart from other undergraduate students.
Taylor’s Chemistry and Biochemistry program also integrates Christian discipleship into all facets of learning. It is especially evident in the purposeful intent our faculty have in getting to know you and help you connect your faith to the Chemistry curriculum. Because we are a small department in a small school, you will have classes with each of our faculty members, all who have different specialties and are willing to mentor you one-on-one.
Students studying chemistry have numerous opportunities to grow in and out of the classroom. These include:
The dedicated laboratory spaces for chemistry provide an excellent learning environment, with open-concept labs rich with technology. The project-oriented lab exercises and research projects provide students with hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology used to investigate real-world problems.
Additionally, the 1,064 square foot chemical instrumentation laboratory houses an impressive selection of American Chemistry Society (ACS) standard analytical tools which are dedicated solely for undergraduate use.
