Chemistry

The chemistry curriculum at Saint Michael's College combines small class sizes, excellent faculty and personal attention with the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience with laboratory instrumentation early in your college career.

Our program is certified by the American Chemical Society – a designation that is important to both graduate schools and employers.

A bachelor's degree in chemistry prepares you for employment in government and industrial laboratories or for further study in graduate or professional schools. By choosing appropriate electives, a major in chemistry can lead to a career in medicine, dentistry, allied health sciences, law or the business world.

For many years, chemistry majors have enjoyed a 100% acceptance rate to professional and graduate schools. Recently, our alumni have attended such schools as Johns Hopkins University, Dartmouth, University of Virginia and Georgetown University.
