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.
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.
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.
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 purpose.Rachel Wu, Class of 2021, Chemistry Major
