Program description

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

At Hanover, students use chemistry to better understand the issues faced by modern society. Maybe your interest is life-saving antibiotics or new kinds of synthetic fibers. Maybe you want to learn how to measure pesticides in drinking water or the antioxidants in food. It's all possible to explore in the superbly equipped labs at your disposal.

You'll begin with an introduction to the breadth of chemistry, followed by a deeper study of advanced subjects. Your program will culminate with a collaborative research project in which you'll explore an area of interest to you, with the help from a member of Hanover's highly specialized faculty. Along the way, you will become a person who speaks the language of chemistry, thinks critically and solves problems.

Why study at Hanover College

Hanover College gives students the best of all worlds. There are renowned professors at the top of their discipline, but classes small enough to get 1:1 interaction and mentoring from those professors.

We are located in a small midwestern area near one of Indiana's most historic small towns (Madison, IN), but less than an hour away from some of the largest and most touristic cities of the Midwest.

We have a one-of-a-kind naturally beautiful campus with over 600 acres of space, hiking trails, over 30 waterfalls, and endless hammocking spots. Hanover is also Indiana's first and oldest private, liberal arts, college. Hanover is also a global institution with about 18 different international partner universities and a variety of study abroad options to participate in during your 4 years here.
