Hands-on experience, state-of-art equipment
Hands on. You'll hear that a lot in the Department of Chemistry. Here's what that means: You will learn by doing, not by memorizing a textbook. Our faculty find out what's interesting to you, then fashion a major that allows you to research that subject in a more in-depth manner.
See what opportunities await for chemistry majors
From conducting research on campus to participating in an instruction group, Simpson chemistry majors have many outside-the-classroom options from which to choose.
Supplemental Instruction Group
This peer-to-peer supplemental instruction group is for students needing some extra help with the material being covered. The group, led by a student who has taken the class, meets once a week to review the material taught that week in the class. During SI sessions, students will strengthen their ability to learn and study strategies while working collaboratively.
