Why Chemistry at Valpo?
Why does Valpo Chemistry beat the national medical school acceptance rate by 35%? Or place over 96% of its majors into employment within 6 months of graduating? Or place its graduates in Top 10 graduate schools? Maybe because we’re centrally located between the industrial markets in Chicago, Indianapolis, St. Louis and Detroit.
Or, perhaps it’s our state-of-the-art building, containing over $1 million in instrumentation our students start using as freshmen. Possibly, it’s our small class and lab sizes which are all taught by Ph.D. professors. Come be part of a caring community that will bring out your very best.
Valpo’s chemistry department is approved by the American Chemical Society to offer certified degrees.
79% acceptance rate to medical school (which is almost twice the national average) after graduation.
Approximately two-thirds of our chemistry and biochemistry majors attend graduate school (often at Top 10 Universities) or professional schools.
