Academic Excellence in a Caring Environment

The researchers and educators of UWG’s Chemistry Program are committed to empowering future leaders in science and healthcare through focused mentorship and independent discovery.

Chemists tackle a wide range of modern scientific challenges—they are found at the forefront of efforts to develop new medicines, design advanced materials, and create a green, sustainable world. UWG’s Chemistry Program prepares students to work in this dynamic profession through hands-on experience in chemical synthesis, analysis, and experimental design using state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. Here you will be a part of a supportive community working together to foster your growth and success. Faculty mentors will work one-on-one with you to tailor your experience based on your career goals. Many students develop and pursue original research projects under the guidance of a faculty mentor, while others take on paid internships with local industrial partners or work in regional healthcare clinics. Students find many ways to get involved, such as mentoring younger students in peer-led team-learning workshops or performing educational outreach through the UWG Chemical Association.

Annually, the Chemistry Program gives out numerous scholarships and achievement awards to our undergraduate chemistry majors. Scholarships are open to application from all qualifying chemistry majors while achievement awards recognizes excellence in academics, dedication to research, and/or commitment to service and are given based on the nomination by the faculty members.
