Chemistry Degree Program

Charles A. Cannon College of Arts and Sciences


Many students have found that a chemistry major from Wingate University is the right prescription to prepare them to become pharmacists. The major can prepare you for other careers in chemistry too.

We can get you ready for the Wingate University School of Pharmacy and other pharmacy schools. We can also get you ready for these options:

  • Graduate school
  • Medical school
  • Optometry school
  • Veterinary school

Immerse yourself in a research project for experience you can’t get any other way. Wingate University students and professors frequently present research at American Chemical Society conferences.

Lab Work
As a chemistry major, you have the advantage of working in four new research labs to complete required lab classes. You’ll conduct research projects as part of your major. You may also have the chance to work as lab assistants or stockroom assistants for more hands-on learning.

You can earn up to three hours of academic credit by completing an internship, an excellent way to see the life of a practicing chemist.

Chemistry Club 
Rub elbows with like-minded chemistry majors in the active Chemistry Club. You’ll have the chance to form a bond with students who share the same interests as you do.


Chemistry majors at Wingate earn either a BS or BA degree. Students may also minor in chemistry. 

Chemistry Four Year Plan

The Four Year Academic Plans are standard templates for how a degree can be completed in eight (8) consecutive Fall & Spring semesters.  There is varying flexibility in the exact course sequence depending upon individual student circumstances, major curriculum and course availability.  Students should consult with their Faculty Advisor for course sequencing, degree planning and other considerations.  Students are ultimately responsible for their degree planning.

My experience

Rachel Wu

"My chemistry professors are my academic advisors, research supervisors, and more importantly, life mentors. The personal attention I get from the faculty has helped me greatly with the transition from high school to college and finding internships outside of campus. This past summer, I worked at a local chemical company called Goulston Technologies to apply my in-class knowledge to real-life problems by evaluating different additives for carpet samples to ensure that they remain durable and soft for commercial purposes."
