majors and Programs
The Chemistry Department at Westmont College focuses on giving our students a broad, deep, and hands-on education. Our students use all of our state of the art instrumentation including an atomic absorption spectrometer, FTIR and UV-VIS spectrometers, HPLC, a mass spectrometer, and a 400 MHz high performance digital nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system. Our faculty members are professionally active, and students have the opportunity to work individually with faculty members on independent research. The research often leads to student co-authored publications in chemistry journals. Many of our graduates have gone on to the top graduate schools and medical schools in the country.
