Exploring the heart of matter

Students in the chemistry program are prepared for professional careers in industrial chemistry, medicine, teaching, or graduate school—but studies are more than just the learning of facts. The Christian perspective of classes offers insight into what chemistry means when considering God, his creation, and our care for it.

Pursuing a degree in chemistry from Trinity Christian College can open the doors to many exciting and rewarding career options. For example, some graduates pair their interest in science with business acumen and go into pharmaceutical sales. Others choose to go on to earn advanced degrees in chemistry, attend medical school or law school, work in forensics roles, help keep industrial workplaces safe, pursue environmental mediation roles, or educate future generations.
