Besides learning chemistry in a lecture class or lab class, research with a faculty mentor is an excellent way to gain experience working on real chemical problems. Especially for those students who plan further studies in graduate and professional schools, research experience is often an entrance requirement. If possible, students may be able to present their research at scientific meetings. Students interested in conducting research should contact a faculty member to learn more about research and funding opportunities.
The mission of the USC Upstate chemistry program is to provide a baccalaureate level education in chemistry that will prepare students for scientific careers in the Upstate region and beyond. Graduates of the chemistry program will possess a broad knowledge of chemistry and the technical and communication skills needed to pursue excellence in their chosen careers and in further study in chemistry, medicine or business.
