The Department of Chemistry offers both its undergraduate and graduate students the resources and opportunities of a top-ranked research university while providing the individual attention, mentoring, and training of a smaller institution. Members of the Department provide guidance and advice to both undergraduates and graduates and work closely with them to ensure academic success.

Highly motivated undergraduates are encouraged to participate in a wide range of research projects under the leadership of faculty members. Research projects are varied in focus and deal with issues such as climate change, disease mitigation, and alternative energy.

The Department of Chemistry offers graduate programs at both the M.S. and the Ph.D. level in the following sub disciplines of Chemistry: organic, inorganic, physical, and analytical. The Department of Chemistry also offers joint graduate programs with the Tufts University Biotechnology Center. These joint graduate programs offer M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry/Biotechnology for those students who are interested in applying their chemical training to emerging areas of biotechnology.
