Welcome to the Chemistry Department!
Chemistry at Amherst thrives on close, personal interactions between our talented students and our dedicated faculty. Class sizes are kept small except for the introductory courses, and even those courses break up into small discussion and laboratory sections taught almost exclusively by faculty.
Research opportunities abound, both within the Department and in interdisciplinary projects, affording students the chance to work on groundbreaking scientific problems while developing a close mentoring relationship with faculty. Add to this mix first-rate facilities, equipment, and support staff, and you have an ideal environment in which to pursue your scientific interests, challenge your curiosity, and, who knows, maybe even launch your career!
The Chemistry Department seminar meets Friday afternoons when classes are in session. You will find the seminar schedule here.
The main department office in Merrill 507 is open from 8:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. We can be contacted at:
