About

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 approved 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.

Our chemistry program has an excellent track record for acceptance to graduate and professional schools. Recently, our alumni have gone on to graduate programs at such schools as Dartmouth, Duke, Tufts, and Yale.

In Depth

Our program focuses on preparing you to succeed in industry and academia by helping you develop the skills to solve chemical problems, to read meaningfully and to utilize properly chemical literature, to work effectively and safely in the laboratory, to communicate scientific ideas and discoveries both orally and in writing, to function well as a member of a team, and to make ethical decisions in the area of science.

Chemistry is the study of matter and its changes. As a chemistry major, you will start with the science and math courses that provide the background necessary to study chemistry. Those courses include General Chemistry I &II, Organic Chemistry I &II, Calculus I &II, College Physics I &II, and Integrated Chemical Analysis. In these introductory chemistry courses, you will gain a broad overview of the many different topics in chemistry, including stoichiometry, bonding, gases, the structure of atoms and molecules, acid-base theory, organic synthesis, error analysis, ethical issues in science, and quantitative analysis. Then you will go on to study further in the areas of inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry and chemical instrumentation, where you will learn about thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum chemistry and spectroscopy, the structure and formation of coordination compounds, group theory, some of the major categories of structures that make up biological systems (including peptides/proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids), and the chemical instrumentation that can be used to study the structure and function of molecules.

As a senior, you will research a chemistry topic in great depth as part of your capstone course, Senior Seminar. You will have two options: you may either prepare a major report on the topic or develop a related research proposal (modeled after the process whereby scientists procure funding for research). For examples of recent chemistry senior projects, go to Seminar Projects. You will also be strongly encouraged to conduct academic research  or complete an internship  as part of your education.

Training Beyond the Traditional Classroom

Chemistry research plays a pivotal role in education by offering students a platform to deepen their understanding of fundamental principles and develop critical thinking skills. At Saint Michael’s College student sponsored research focuses on hands-on experimentation and analysis, experimental design, interpretation of data, and communicate findings effectively. This process not only enhances their grasp of scientific concepts but also cultivates problem-solving abilities crucial for success in academia and beyond.  Furthermore, engaging in chemistry research prepares students for future careers by providing practical experience and making them more competitive in the job market. See our career’s tab for examples of where our alumni land.

Student Presentations at National Meetings

Most research active students present their work at the National American Chemical Society (ACS) meetings which are held twice a year all over the country.  Below are just a few recent examples of student presentations and their corresponding abstracts.

Research poster presented by Declan Hutchinson.

Declan Hutchinson (Biochemistry Major)
Faculty Sponsor: Dr. Andrew Korich

Topic: Boron-containing substrates and reagents possess a unique ability to transition between tricoordinate and tetracoordinate states, making them valuable in medicinal therapeutics and organic syntheses. The evaluation of boron-based systems using the Gutmann-Beckett Acceptor Number approach aims to enhance understanding of boron Lewis acidity and the reactivity of mixed boron trihalides, which remains incompletely assessed.

Amanda Spink, Haley Poitras
Faculty Sponsor: Dr. David Heroux

Topic: Various mesoporous zirconia catalysts were created using a sol‐gel method with different surface areas. Two modification approaches were explored: sulfation and titanium addition. The modified catalysts were analyzed using FTIR‐ATR spectroscopy and N2 physisorption to assess surface properties. Catalytic performance was evaluated through self‐aldol condensation of cyclopentanone, followed by GCMS analysis.
