About

The undergraduate program in Chemistry at University of Massachusetts Boston has been designed to prepare students for the challenges that face the chemist in a modern society.

Overview

Graduates of the Chemistry program from University of Massachusetts Boston may go directly into industry or may continue their education at the graduate level in chemistry, medicine, dentistry, or other fields. 

Both lectures and discussion sections in most first and second year courses are conducted by faculty members who bring to the subject their experience in teaching and research to help make students aware of current developments in the field. Faculty direct laboratories as well, and with the aid of teaching assistants are able to give individual attention to smaller groups of students during laboratory sessions.

Capstone Requirement

Students majoring in Chemistry must, during their senior year, register for CHEM 491/492 (Senior Thesis). This yearlong course will require the student to undertake a research project, either in the laboratory or literature-based research, culminating in the preparation of a research paper of significant length. The student will also present the work orally at the end of the year. Research topics must be approved by the faculty mentor before research begins. A grade of at least "C" in the capstone is required for graduation.
