What Our Alumni Say:

Ashley Moorman
"The chemistry program at Liberty University prepared me for the graduate program at Old Dominion University by allowing me to gain research experience. Graduate school in the sciences is all about research." 
Addie Lauder
"The facilities and instrumentation we have at LU have given me an educational experience I couldn’t have received anywhere else. At both of the internships I’ve had, my employers are always impressed that I’ve had the opportunity to work with instruments like HPLC, GC/MS, and FTIR." 
Daniel Reddy
"It was a great experience attending small classes and having plenty of one-on-one interactions with professors who are knowledgeable in their fields and most importantly caring about your professional development. I got into my top choice Ph.D. program, and I credit the role my professors played in my time in the LU chem program for this." 
Anna Huebner
"Because of this program, I walked into an internship more than prepared for what was expected of me and was very well-equipped to begin my graduate program this fall."
