Mary Baldwin University offers majors in Chemistry (BA, or BS with two Washington and Lee courses) and Biochemistry (BS) and a minor in Chemistry. Both independent and profoundly collaborative, chemistry is central to science and a major or minor in Chemistry or Biochemistry prepares students for rewarding careers in industry, academia, and the public sector (government). These majors also provide a strong background for pursuing advanced work in medicine, business, and law. Students receive personalized attention and real laboratory experience on meaningful research projects.

A student pursuing the BS chemistry major is required to have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.3 and have an average GPA for at least 3 chemistry courses taken at Mary Baldwin of at least 3.5 prior to registering for any courses at W&L. The student is also expected to provide her/his own transportation to W&L.
