Dr. Dan King, analytical chemistry professor, discusses the opportunities students will have at Taylor to do interdisciplinary research with faculty and peers.
Chemistry and Biochemistry
Think interdisciplinary, interpersonal, interactive
Chemists and biochemists don’t always work alone in a lab, hunched over equipment with their lab coats on. Today’s chemists embrace liberal arts education and excel in environments where they work together with peers. The opportunities to work in these fields are endless and include working with botanists to protect crops, partnering with kinesiology professors to improve exercise science processes, or working with others in the medical field to cure diseases.
At Taylor, you get the additional benefit of working with chemistry and biochemistry faculty who are passionate about showing you how to integrate your faith into what you'll do every day. You will also have the opportunity to work on real-world projects in the Euler Science Complex with state-of-the-art equipment.
Join the ranks of alumni who have a 95% placement into medical school, 100% placement rate for all graduate schools, and 99% placement rate for industry and teaching.
Take the next step
Two interdisciplinary majors—biochemistry and sustainable development—have joined Taylor’s science offerings, providing students additional opportunities to learn at the intersections of disciplines.
Sustainable land management, public health emergencies, medical missions, urban gardens, and bridging science, ethics and religion are among the topics being covered during the Annual Natural Sciences Seminar, a series of Monday afternoon lectures and presentations hosted by Taylor University’s Department of Natural Sciences each Monday during the Fall Semester.
