• Overview

    All that we are depends upon Chemistry. By learning the principles that predict the behavior of matter, we are in a better position to understand the world around us.

    At William Peace University, Chemistry is offered as a stand-alone minor or as a minor or concentration in the Liberal Studies major. Coursework spans inorganic, organic, and biochemistry in labs as well as the classroom. The curriculum is designed for a strong grounding in chemistry fundamentals, preparing you for graduate work or future careers in research, health care or industry, among other fields.
