Students earning a degree in Chemistry benefit from rigorous instruction in the classroom, training in a variety of labs, close relationships with devoted faculty, involvement in serious research and high-level internships, and opportunities to present original research on campus and during professional conferences.

Chemistry majors study in the Rickey Science Center, a facility that features laboratories equipped the with latest technology and instrumentation, including a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, a Fourier-transform infrared spectrophotometer, a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, laser equipment and molecular modeling software. 

Graduates of the program often maintain contact with their former professors at Marietta throughout their post-graduate students and career paths.
