Augustana College - Rock Island, IL

  • BS

About the programs Augustana College offers a major and minor in chemistry, a major and minor in biochemistry, and a major for teaching chemistry. The program is nationally accredited by the American Chemical Society. Eight of the nine full-time faculty hold the Ph.D.; all are active in research and teach laboratory sessions. Pamela Trotter holds the Robert W. Beart Chair in Chemistry, an endowed position that supports her collaboration with students in research and preparations for presenting at conferences. One chemistry faculty member also advises Augustana's pre-pharmacy program, a degree program typically requiring two years of study at an undergraduate school followed by fours years at an accredited school of pharmacy. The curriculum for Augustana's program focuses on chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics and coursework to build a strong liberal arts foundation. The acceptance rate of Augustana students into pharmacy schools has been 95 percent over the past five years. The chemistry department's close proximity to other departments in the Science Building -- biology and physics -- supports a great deal of interdisciplinary study and research in the sciences. Five laboratories are dedicated to undergraduate research in chemistry, including the new and extensive Guehler biochemistry laboratory. Special equipment includes a 400 MHz liquid- and solid-state NMR spectrometer, scanning electron microscope and instrumentation for X-ray powder crystallography.
