Students and the Educational Experience
Our students have the opportunity to learn chemistry through exceptionally close interactions with the faculty who have a special interest in teaching as well as research. The number of students participating in a graduate seminar typically ranges between three and eight. Students are kept aware of the latest developments in chemistry through the departmental colloquium, where faculty, postdoctoral researchers, and students gather to hear chemists from other institutions present their latest research. In addition, the biology, geology, and physics colloquia often have topics of interest to chemists.  Beyond our campus, the Philadelphia area is rich with pharmaceutical  industry and other academic institutions which provide a rich array of seminar opportunities.

Our graduate students come to the department from a variety of undergraduate programs, recently including the University of Pennsylvania, Franklin and Marshall College, Bucknell University, St. Joseph's University, Haverford College, Elizabethtown College, Gettysburg College, Eastern College, DeSales University, Wilson College, Randolph-Macon College, Widener University and several foreign institutions including the University of Montreal, Shanghai University, and Nanjing University.
