Get the Know-How You Need
Our expert faculty will guide you from research to discovery.
Picture yourself in our professionally-equipped laboratory, navigating pathways of discovery. Our dedicated faculty will guide you as you conquer advanced instrumentation that shapes modern chemistry. Here's just a few examples—delve into molecular analysis with the MVR spectrometer, unraveling the enigmatic properties of compounds and exploring the mesmerizing world of molecular structure. Experience the vibrant realm of chemical interactions with the FT-IR spectrometer, deciphering the intricate language of molecules through vibrational signatures.
We offer two emphases within the American Chemical Society, one of the largest scientific societies in the country: ACS Chemistry and ACS Environmental Chemistry. Both of these emphases show employers the academic rigor and high-quality program you've achieved at UW-Green Bay. You'll also complete at least 400 hours of experience in the lab, building your skills in a wide variety of scientific concepts.
Your choice of emphasis will help pave the path toward your career.
Discover more about the world around you. Our emphasis in chemistry prepares you for careers in medicine, pharmacy, chemical engineering, forensics, teaching and more.
Compared to General Chemistry, ACS Chemistry is more intensive, with an emphasis on intellectual, experimental and communication skills.
ACS Environmental Chemistry
Create a better world and a better career with this emphasis. Your research on how chemicals affect our planet will help inform better decisions.
We've Always Been Green
Expect nothing less from the original ECO-U®.
Our program commits to sustainable practices in all laboratory classes and in their research programs. As the original Eco U, we aim to follow the 12 principles of green chemistry: pollution prevention; atom economy; less hazardous chemical syntheses; designing safer chemicals; safer solvents and auxiliaries; designing for energy efficiency; using renewable feedstocks; reducing derivatives; catalysis; designing for degradation; real-time analysis for pollution prevention; and using inherently safer chemistry for accident prevention.
Your Path to Success
Success in chemistry is possible for curious, hardworking students who persevere through challenges. Chemistry can be very challenging, but studying the subject affords profound opportunities and benefits. The skills learned can be applied to numerous occupations, not specifically academic or industrial research. Ask questions, try your best and take advantage of every opportunity."
