Bryn Mawr’s Chemistry Department has a more than century-long tradition of combining high quality, visible research programs with excellent teaching – a tradition the department is committed to continuing this century. The chemistry department seeks to provide a supportive and rigorous curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate level to students having diverse preparation and diverse goals.
Our department offers a unique opportunity to study chemistry in an environment that is distinctive for these reasons:
We are a community of teachers and students, researchers and mentors, colleagues and co-workers. Students have opportunities to be researchers in faculty research and work side by side with faculty. Sophomore, junior and senior chemistry majors may serve in teaching roles such as teaching assistants in general chemistry labs or peer instructors in introductory chemistry courses.
The chemistry major program of study includes introductory and advanced courses in the core areas of biological, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Advanced courses are informed by the research areas of bioinorganic, nanomaterials, medicinal, computational, synthetic reaction development, enzyme studies, and nucleic acid and protein chemistry.
