Chemistry and Biochemistry
The Wichita State Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry strives to provide an inclusive,
quality educational experience for students across all disciplines at WSU. This mission
includes applied learning experiences relevant to regional and national needs. The
department awards bachelor’s degrees in pre-medicine, biochemistry and chemistry along
with master’s and doctoral degrees. Wichita State University students who major in
chemistry can design a program to match their interests and prepare them for the range
of opportunities available in the global workplace.
The graduate programs in chemistry prepare students for careers ranging from teaching
at postsecondary institutions to conducting research in universities, industrial settings
and government laboratories.
The Department’s research and teaching efforts work in unison to provide students
at all levels from freshmen to Ph.D. with access to applied learning experiences in
state-of-the-art chemical and biochemical research. Faculty pride themselves in innovative
research and quality education at all levels to support students as they pursue their
degrees. Their research is focused on areas of national importance such as health
and advanced materials.
Students who graduate from the department gain experience with cutting-edge research
methods and state-of-the-art instrumentation. Please visit our links to undergraduate
