Chemistry

The mission of the Chemistry Department is to provide students with a scientific knowledge and experimental skills necessary for a career in chemistry or related fields.

A chemistry degree prepares students for graduate school in chemistry and related fields such as biochemistry, molecular biology, medicinal chemistry, and pharmaceutical, forensic and environmental science. The major also prepares students for careers in governmental laboratories and industry.

Many of Drake's chemistry alumni have earned graduate degrees in chemistry, physics or medicine while many others have taken rewarding jobs in industry, government and academic institutions.
