A Tradition of Excellence
The faculty and staff of the Department of Chemistry work to maintain an excellent student-centered curriculum, a supportive environment, and a vibrant intellectual community for Chemistry majors and non-majors alike. We strive to mentor students to become ethical, productive members of society who apply their scientific knowledge and skills in a broad range of endeavors.
Our curriculum emphasizes the integration of teaching and research. Consequently, we work with the students as they construct their Chemistry knowledge and develop the skills (laboratory, instrumentation, information literacy, problem solving, oral and written communication, time management) necessary to be successful in their studies at Wooster and in their many life-long pursuits.
