Back to Academics CHEMISTRY & PHYSICS


Chemistry students learn to discover chemical concepts by practicing experimental investigative procedures. Students acquire problem solving skills involving laboratory manipulation, critical observation, and mathematical analysis. They also develop writing, math, and speaking skills.

Chemists are highly paid professionals. Wilmington College chemistry graduates are successfully pursuing careers in basic research, chemical production, industrial management, agriculture, the health professions, technical communications, and education at all levels.

PBS News Hour hosted a competition asking, "Science students, why did you choose basic research?" Well, here are what a few of our students had to say!


Chemistry Students Present Research

Chemistry majors Nathaniel Godby (class of 2014) and Christina Veite (class of 2016) traveled to the 246th American Chemical Society National Meeting and Exposition in Indianapolis Sept. 9, 2013, along with chemistry faculty member Michael Goldcamp, associate professor. They presented posters of their chemistry research that they have been conducting with their research advisor, Al Conklin. professor of chemistry and agriculture. Nate's poster was titled "Comparison of elutants used for the determination of analgesics and accompanying active ingredients by thin layer chromatography," and Christina's poster was entitled "Sorbance of bisphenols by filter media."
