William & Mary has one of the premier undergraduate programs of chemistry in the country. Many of our graduates complete American Chemical Society (ACS) approved degrees, and we have a strong commitment to undergraduate research. All courses, including laboratories, are taught by faculty members, and we strive to provide a significant amount of personalized interactions with our students. Alumni of the department include university professors, research scientists, physicians, lawyers, dentists, executives, directors of research, secondary school teachers, and administrators. We never know where we'll find one of our majors - the study of chemistry opens many doors.
Also, many students who are not chemistry majors need chemistry courses for their studies. Our courses and faculty support biology, geology, neuroscience, physics, environmental science and biochemistry programs.
