Chemistry | St. Lawrence University


Chemists understand the natural world through the structure and bonding of atoms. From their first course in chemistry, St. Lawrence students learn through hands-on experiences in the classroom and cutting-edge labs. They pursue independent research projects with faculty mentors to discover new medications, forms of renewable energy, and insights into the structure of proteins. Many students present their results at regional and national conferences. Our chemistry program builds from its liberal arts setting to educate the whole person, and the National Science Foundation (NSF) couldn’t agree more, providing us with a grant to create the new Liberal Arts Science Scholars program.

Our chemistry majors have gone on to successful careers and prestigious graduate schools, including:

Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Columbia University
Cornell University
University of California, Berkeley
University of California, San Diego
University of Washington
University of Wisconsin–Madison
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of Virginia
Vanderbilt University
Vertex Pharmaceuticals
