A tradition of innovation and excellence
The chemistry department at Brandeis offers our undergraduate and graduate students a world-class education in an intimate setting where faculty and students work closely.
As a chemistry major you'll develop extensive, practical experience through advanced laboratory courses. You'll be strongly encouraged to participate in independent research — our award-winning and nationally recognized faculty's research spans the traditional established areas of chemistry (organic chemistry, physical chemistry) and newly emerging interdisciplinary fields such as chemical biology, biophysical chemistry, and materials chemistry.
