Knowledge to understand our world

Chemistry is the study of all things chemical, so we better understand how materials are structured, how they change, and how they react in certain situations. As a chemistry graduate, you can apply your knowledge to our entire environment.

University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Chemistry curriculum is certified by the American Chemistry Society (ACS) that promotes excellence in chemistry education. ACS-approved programs, like those at UW-Platteville, offer a broad-based and rigorous chemistry program that provides the intellectual, experimental, and communication skills you need to succeed.

The strong lab component of many of our courses, along with hands-on experiences with instruments that support faculty-student research activities, will prepare you for graduate school or for careers with pharmaceutical companies, in criminalistics, in research and development in the food industry, and more.

At UW-Platteville, you can pursue a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, biochemistry, and criminalistics, or in an affiliated minor such as chemistry or microsystems and nanotechnology. You’ll work in small groups, benefit from one-on-one time with faculty, and experience thought-provoking labs. You’ll also find excellent opportunities for internships.
