The UW-Eau Claire chemistry department is nationally recognized as one of the top undergraduate chemistry departments in the country. The Department of Chemistry and the comprehensive A.C.S. chemistry majors are certified by the American Chemical Society. In a recent 10-year interval, UW-Eau Claire ranks in the top 3 percent of undergraduate chemistry programs nationwide in the number of graduates going on to obtain chemistry Ph.D.'s.
All Chemistry faculty have doctoral degrees, and all teach chemistry courses. The added benefit of our smaller size is that ALL courses are professor-taught, and faculty members are readily accessible outside of class. In addition to the stand-out faculty, students are provided the opportunity to interact with leading figures in the chemical sciences through our yearly seminar program.
Five UW-Eau Claire chemistry faculty members have received prestigious Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards, and only one other department at a public university has five such awards (one of those recipients is a Blugold Alumnus).
In short, the merits of this department speak for themselves, and the experiences offered to Blugold students in chemistry are unmatched by the larger, perhaps more widely known institutions. We provide a world-class undergraduate program, proven by the success of our graduates.
The UWEC Chemistry Department strives to:
While it’s our faculty who truly make the chemistry program so successful, it’s the world-class instrumentation that gives Blugold chemistry students the skills and experience that will set them apart as job applicants and grad school candidates.Industry standard instruments
