To truly breathe life into science, you need to experience what you are studying in an up-close and personal way. That’s why practical learning is built into our curriculum.
These funds will accumulate and finance student research projects that are not otherwise funded, or large-ticket instrument purchases as needed. It will be used to ensure good experiences for HU students in the areas of instrumentation and research within the Huntington University Department of Chemistry. Learn more and make a contribution.
Practical learning is built into our curriculum, and state-of-the-art equipment is the standard. With a 200 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, fluorimeters, laser polarimeter, high performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC), and so much more, your courses will be packed with experiential learning to equip you for your future career.
As a result of our University’s size and dedication to excellence, you will gain direct access to competitive research opportunities, including work with PhD faculty. From independent research projects, faculty-led initiatives, and research collaborations with other natural science departments, you will leave your mark on the science of life while stewarding God’s creation.
Internship opportunities are widely available for HU chemistry students. This field experience will provide an opportunity for you to apply theoretical knowledge in a practical setting and prepare for a future career. Additionally by the time you graduate, you will have over 400 hours of hands-on lab experience with our state-of-the-art equipment.
We want to expand your horizon to understand the world as God made it while also preparing you to step confidently into the next phase of your career. As a chemistry student, you’ll learn how to keep a quality lab notebook, gain confidence in using lab instrumentation, and develop research techniques to set you up for graduate school or a professional career.
