Chemistry Department

The faculty in the Chemistry Department assumes that through the study of chemistry one can understand another aspect of God’s creation. Consequently, chemistry logically becomes a part of the College’s concept of Christian education.

The department offers curricula designed for those planning to enter graduate study in chemistry, teach chemistry, or work in the chemical industry. It also serves those planning for careers in engineering and the health-related sciences (medical technology, pharmacy, dentistry, or medicine). A recent study of Greenville’s chemistry graduates (1985-2000) revealed that more than 80% have either received or are currently working towards advanced degrees. Thus, a major in chemistry at Greenville College is excellent preparation for many different career choices.

The department’s state of the art instrumentation and opportunities for original student research provide the type of experiences for our majors that make them strong candidates for positions in industry, education, graduate or professional health schools.
