The chemistry department at Bowdoin provides a rigorous preprofessional education for students who intend to pursue a career in science.

A Strong Teaching Tradition

The tradition of combining its primary teaching role with an ongoing and exciting research program has long been a hallmark of the department. The department is committed to the development of students as investigators who have been challenged to think critically and independently. This development takes place in a supportive atmosphere where teaching and research partnerships are formed and faculty and students work together in common pursuits.
