Graduate and undergraduate students collaborate with faculty and staff on research across the chemical sciences. Additionally, researchers collaborate across disciplines within the department, across campus, and even across the world.
The Department of Chemistry is ranked very highly in all recent national rankings of graduate programs. We offer both a doctor of philosophy in chemistry and, in limited cases, a master of science in chemistry.
The undergraduate chemistry major leads to a bachelor of science or a bachelor of arts degree awarded by the College of Letters & Science. The curriculum provides excellent preparation in chemistry, along with a wide breadth of liberal arts coursework.
At the UW-Madison Department of Chemistry, world-class education and groundbreaking research go hand-in-hand to provide a collaborative and innovative environment for the thousands of students, faculty, and staff that we serve.
