International Educational Opportunities

The Chemistry Department encourages students to study abroad and periodically offers opportunities to do so. To see the opportunities coming up in the near future, click here.


Most of our majors complete an internship during their junior or senior years. To learn more about the university's requirements for internships, take a look at the registrar's internship website. To find out about specific opportunities, talk to a chemistry faculty member and visit this page that the ACS chapter maintains. The ACS also maintains a site of summer research and internship opportunities.

When you are ready to include CH470-Chemistry Internship in your schedule, you will need to complete an Internship Learning Contract and attach it to your Individual Study Contract. You will need to get several chemistry department signatures on the contract form before getting the dean's signature (209 Shilling Hall).

Chemistry Fellows Fund

The chemistry faculty at Millikin University have established an endowed fund to encourage performance learning through undergraduate research in chemistry at Millikin.

To achieve this goal, each spring the chemistry faculty will designate at least one student who will be either a junior or senior the following year as the Chemistry Fellow(s). A student may be designated a Chemistry Fellow two years in a row. A plaque in the Chemistry Department will honor each year's Fellow(s). For more information, visit the Chemistry Fellows Fund page. 

MACTLAC Annual Meeting

The Chemistry Department at Millikin University hosts the Annual Midwestern Association of Chemistry Teachers in Liberal Arts College (MACTLAC) meeting. Visit the MACTLAC Annual Meeting page for more information.
