Why Study Chemistry At UST?

Like most programs in chemistry accredited by the American Chemical Society, the UST Chemistry department has a rigorous curriculum that prepares students for a successful future. Our graduates have successfully entered careers in areas ranging from medicine to electronic materials design to environmental research (to name just a few – see the alumni page for more specifics). We have talented and creative faculty who excel in the classroom and, perhaps more importantly, engage with students outside the classroom in research, clubs, and other areas.  Nearly all of our students are involved in independent research with a faculty mentor, and a high percentage get involved during their first year. Our students and faculty have developed a culture that encourages learning through questions, creative study, and the comfort of knowing that every door is open to them.
