Brandeis' Department of Chemistry provides a small, collegial environment within a top ranked research university. Graduate programs in chemistry offer a portfolio of exciting research programs balanced between established and emerging areas in chemistry.
In addition to providing rigorous scientific training through coursework, seminar participation, and research, our graduate program is designed to enhance personal skills in communication, teaching, collaboration, and lead to a broad understanding of the field.
Graduate programs are designed to be flexible so that individual programs of study in organic, physical, biophysical and materials chemistry may be devised to satisfy the particular interests and needs of each student. Students' programs are decided by consultation among the student, the Graduate Studies Committee, and the thesis supervisor.
The doctoral program normally includes a basic set of courses in the student's own area of interest, supplemented by advanced courses in chemistry and, when appropriate, biochemistry, biology, computer science, mathematics, and physics. Students in the PhD program are eligible to participate in the interdepartmental Graduate Program in Quantitative Biology, which provides training in new research fields that cross the traditional boundaries between the life sciences and the physical sciences.
