WSU Chemistry Instructional Labs

The WSU Chemistry Department also provides an excellent laboratory supplement to the lecture educational material. Laboratories are designed to drive students to develop and apply critical analysis to both theoretical and real-world problems. At WSU, we believe that education is more than memorizing problems, it is about discovering new ways to look at information and taking that into your career. If you are a WSU Chemistry Major, you can expect that this applied education will persist through your general chemistry classes as well as organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry.
