About

The University of North Carolina Wilmington Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is routinely in the top 5% of Masters granting institutions in the entire country. 

Overview

The University of North Carolina Wilmington Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has an active research program in chemical education, which keeps our faculty on the cutting edge of innovative teaching methodologies. The UNCW Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has extensive experience working with corporate partners and their employees within our current graduate fellows program.

Education

One of the most important factors contributing our current success is the close supervision and mentoring of students by faculty (ca. 1.5:1). A result of this close contact between students and faculty is that interactions are very collegial which provides the necessary atmosphere for the free exchange of new thoughts and ideas. The results of this close supervision of students by faculty are graduates who are well trained and highly sought after by both Ph.D. institutions and industry. Success of the graduates is indicated by the close to 100% placement in relevant positions.

In response to regional econonic needs, the department also added a track in pharmaceutical chemistry to the M.S. degree program. It is funded by a substantial gift from a local high-growth company that conducts contract chemical analyses for the pharmaceutical industry.
