The Undergraduate Information & Curriculum Guide provides additional information about Chemistry and Biochemistry majors/minors, departmental honors and undergraduate research. Sample course syllabi are available online for some of the more popular Chemistry undergraduate courses.

Information for graduating with honors is available here.

There are two federally funded programs that provide both financial and professional development support to prepare undergraduate students for entry into PhD programs. 

  • MARC Program website: The Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) program.
