Chemistry Major

When applying for jobs and graduate programs, experience is key. At Goshen College, you will get hands-on experience in small classes with top-notch faculty. Even in your first semester at GC, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art equipment normally reserved for graduate students.

If you study chemistry at GC, you’ll be among students who score, on average, in the 75th percentile nationally on the standardized exit exam. About 90 percent of pre-med graduates are accepted into medical schools, which is twice the national rate. Likewise, 80 percent of chemistry and biochemistry graduates are accepted into graduate school programs, far above the national average.

In the Goshen College chemistry program, we’ll take your natural curiosity and supply you with the skills you’ll need to be successful in industry, medical school, graduate school, and beyond.
