UT Department of Chemistry offers either a B.S. degree with a major in chemistry or a B.S. in Chemistry degree that is certified by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society (ACS). There are many opportunities for chemistry majors to participate in undergraduate research projects with faculty. We offer many areas of study: analytical, synthetic, inorganic, physical and materials chemistry. Chemistry majors may also graduate with honors in chemistry.
We offer a long-standing tradition of excellence in chemical research and education, stretching from 1947, when the department granted the University's first Ph.D. degree, to the present. Our faculty members have research interests that both span the traditional areas of chemistry and encompass new interdisciplinary fields such as materials chemistry, chemistry of the life sciences, and environmental chemistry. We offer Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and polymer chemistry.
The Department of Chemistry would like to welcome 33 students from all over the world to join our department this fall. New students will receive a series of training from teaching to lab safety during their orientation week. International students will receive additional training organized by the Center of International Education. Each student has been assigned a lab to be their temporary office.
