Innovating in the life sciences.
In the Chemistry Department at Worcester State University, we focus on helping you develop a solid understanding of the principles of chemical processes through an innovative combination of classroom learning and laboratory experience. Here, you’ll discover the relevance of chemistry to a wide array of disciplines—biology, biotechnology, physics, medicine, nursing, and pharmacology, for example—and hone the scientific skills and knowledge you need to succeed in any of those areas. If you decide to pursue advanced study in a health-care field, you will graduate from Worcester State with the strong foundation you’ll need to continue your education.
