Additional classrooms, labs, and research space are located in and around the Mazzuchelli Center that is set on the waterfront of Lake Wingra.
With a focus on research and hands-on learning, the Chemistry, Geoscience, and Physics Department at Edgewood College is a great starting point for preparing yourself for a wide range of careers--from education to engineering--or to succeed in medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, physical therapy and other professional schools.
