About Chemistry

Experiments Thrive at Butler

Chemistry touches on all fields of scientific inquiry. This major relies heavily on critical thinking and experimentation – both of which you use at Butler. By working one-on-one with chemistry instructors in the laboratory, you gain hands-on experience, individualized attention and collaborate with fellow students. Along with smaller class sizes, you gain individualized help outside of the classroom from chemistry tutors, which is another reason why chemistry students succeed at Butler.

In this high-powered program, you learn to calculate like a chemist. You experiment with challenging solvents, learn the composition and structure of matter and how matter transforms. Butler offers you the chance to excel, save money and then transfer to a four-year college.


One-Week Bootcamp

Ask Your Advisor about the Chemistry Review / Biology Bootcamp Are you apprehensive about taking general biology, chemistry, microbiology or A & P courses? Butler has a quick refresher course that helps prepare you for our science courses. This one-week boot camp helps you learn crucial concepts, review material and understand what is expected of you. By taking this one-week (5 or 7 day options available), not-for-credit class, you get a jumpstart on your science class success. This developmental course is scheduled the week before the start of each semester and is ineligible for college credit. To join the boot camp, register with your advisor.

The certification program extends over a three-semester period culminating during the summer session with an internship at a biotechnology company/lab.
