The Davidson College Department of Chemistry takes seriously its mission to provide an exceptionally rich learning environment in which to study chemistry. All courses are taught and all research is planned and facilitated by faculty members who are generous with their time and knowledge. Students can expect individual attention—promoted through small lecture and lab classes and by professors committed to interacting with students one-on-one and in small groups—as a hallmark of the department.
Student Research Students have opportunities throughout the year (fall, spring and summer) to participate in individual or small group research with a chemistry professor. Read more about current projects.
Chemistry Colloquium Offered each semester, the series brings to campus a wide array of national and international academic and industrial speakers, providing opportunities for students and faculty to interact informally with these experts.
