Study Chemistry at BU

Chemistry Majors at Boston University enjoy a rich experience in modern chemical education, both in and out of the classroom. Our chemistry classrooms and teaching labs, especially the new organic labs, have been recently renovated and integrated with state-of-the-art technology and research-grade instrumentation. With access to these facilities, and a rigorous curriculum featuring flexible choices of electives for various specializations, our dedicated faculty are able to provide the best possible chemistry education to our students.The low student-to-faculty ratio in the Chemistry department – a novelty at a large institution of Boston University’s stature – further allows for meaningful interactions between our chemistry majors and faculty, either in small classes or through cutting-edge research programs, to develop real-world skills in molecular science and inquiry. Moreover, with more than 75% of our majors participating in undergraduate research alongside graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, the students graduating in Chemistry are amongst the most prepared BU graduates for a diverse number of future career paths.

In addition to substantial interactions with faculty, Chemistry majors are involved in a number of exciting mentoring and teaching organizations such as CHEMIA, BU-WISE, the Learning Assistant program, and more. The Chemistry department community is nurturing and supportive, and our graduates build friendships and relationships that span their four years at BU and well beyond.
