The mission of the Chemistry Program at Wheaton College is to enable students to acquire the knowledge and skills needed to understand our chemical world and investigate its complexities. We are committed to fostering students’ creativity and to preparing them for meaningful careers in the Chemical Sciences. Students grow, learn, and discover through research collaborations with faculty members. Wheaton’s small classes and hands-on teaching style are uniquely suited to helping students emerge as responsible scientists.
The Department of Chemistry offers a Chemistry major which is accredited by the American Chemical Society.
