Graduate Program

Welcome to the Department of Chemistry’s graduate program. Our graduate program is unique for its research-first philosophy. While students at other schools experience coursework-intensive first years, you’ll be doing research. By the time you’ve earned your degree, our goal is for you to have published high-quality, original research (sometimes, by the end of your first year), establishing a strong research record.

Here are some resources that will help you along the way.
