Chemistry research and developments, from advanced technology to modern medicine, stand at the forefront of science, technology, engineering, and math’s (STEM) progression in the 21st century. Committed to helping you learn more about these areas and take the next step toward your career in science, Taylor University’s Chemistry program is certified by the American Chemical Society and the only Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) university in Indiana with ACS certification.
As a Taylor Chemistry major, you will explore concepts and theories of analytical, organic, inorganic, computational, and physical chemistry and biochemistry, while cultivating skills in calculus and physics. Additionally, you will develop the necessary skills to apply your chemical knowledge to prevalent scientific issues.
Taylor offers numerous chemistry research opportunities that build resumes and count toward academic credit, providing you with firsthand experiences you’ll need to succeed as a chemist or chemistry graduate student. Some grant programs, such as Taylor's Faculty Mentored Undergraduate Scholarship program, pay students to do research projects during the summer or academic year and gain hands-on experience with spectroscopic, spectrometric, electrochemical, chromatographic, and hybrid analytical instrumentations.
Students adding the Pre-Med program to their degrees are trained for the entrance exam of the health school of their choice, with a 95% placement rate. In addition to standard chemistry requirements, students take classes in cell biology, genetics, and anatomy and physiology to best prepare for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Entering Taylor’s Pre-Med program as a Chemistry major specifically benefits students looking to work in dentistry, pharmaceuticals, or other allied health fields. With the availability of specific additional electives, students are provided with focused preparation for their goals.Learn More
