Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
The chemistry curriculum at Bennington is anchored by a sequence of four courses that integrate, rather than separate, general chemistry and organic chemistry for a compelling presentation of the key aspects of both subjects. The structure of the sequence allows for the inclusion of special topics that fall outside of the realms of either general or organic chemistry, but which can give students insights into fascinating current advances in other branches of the discipline. All courses include readings from the primary literature, writing components (especially in response to articles and concerning lab work), and discussion-based class sessions. The curricula are designed to be useful for science students pursuing a variety of goals: advanced chemistry, biology, other physical sciences, and pre-medical plans. After completing the sequence, many students continue their study in the discipline by taking Biochemistry. This course is usually taken by a combination of post-baccalaureates and upper-level undergraduates. We emphasize the integrated nature of the field and make extensive use of student research projects in the structure of the course. Because it applies all the chemistry and biology they have learned to that point to the focused study of the molecular processes of life, this course frequently serves as an enriching capstone experience. The faculty routinely supervise independent research tutorials and thesis work for students concentrating in the discipline as well as offer advanced tutorials on subjects such as medicinal chemistry, physical chemistry, group theory, and nanoscience. We also routinely offer chemistry courses without prerequisites that are intended for students not concentrating in the sciences, including Environmental Chemistry, The Chemistry of Drugs, The Chemistry of Color, Our Energy Future: The Chemistry of Alternative Fuels, and The Nanotechnology Revolution.

Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The chemistry department offers a Ph.D. graduate program in analytical, inorganic, organic or physical chemistry. In recent years about eight students per year have received the Ph.D.—the size of the student body makes for close faculty-student contacts and an informal, stimulating atmosphere. A Ph.D. degree in chemistry prepares students for careers in chemical sciences and related disciplines including biomedical sciences, biotechnology, catalysis, energy, environment, materials science, or nanotechnology. Individuals having earned a Ph.D. in chemistry at UVM have gone on to careers in academics, the chemical industry, and national research laboratories. Graduate study at UVM is research intensive, and a description of research by classic chemical subdivision follows. Analytical chemistry involves developing and applying instrumentation and chemical methods to solve problems across a range of chemistries and scientific disciplines. One focus is in electroanalytical chemistry studying redox processes of organometallic compounds, including electrocatalysis relevant to the environmental and biological applications. Another area focuses on the development of innovative methods and instruments to study the formation and chemistry of organic aerosols in the atmosphere. This work bridges the gap between analytical chemistry and atmospheric science, contributing to the understanding of the impact of aerosols on global climate through direct scattering of solar radiation and the formation of ice and water clouds. The third area develops mass spectrometry instrumentation and chemistries for addressing current problems in the biomedical sciences. Key foci are development of methods for advancing the rapidly growing field of proteomics and application of stable isotopically labeled tracers to answer questions of metabolism and metabolic diseases in humans. Inorganic chemistry at UVM involves the study of main-group elements and transition metals in a variety of contexts, with applications in catalysis, energy, environment, and medicine. One example is the synthesis and characterization of inorganic particles, which can be functionalized for broad applications in heterogeneous catalysis, targeted drug delivery, and biological imaging. Another area of interest is spectroscopic and biochemical studies of metalloproteins, with the goal of using a detailed understanding of their structures to explain reaction patterns. Finally, a third example is the design of metal-based catalysts for chemical bond formation, which can be applied to the preparation of useful small molecules and novel polymeric materials. Current research in organic chemistry includes the development of novel synthetic methodologies to prepare oxygen- and nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds, new ring fragmentation reactions and their applications in synthesis, development of efficient and stereoselective tandem/cascade reaction sequences, target-directed total synthesis of medicinally valuable natural products including macrolides, alkaloids, and terpenoids, biomimetic natural product synthesis, mechanistic studies of organic chemical reactions, development of 1,3-diaza-Claisen rearrangements and applications toward the synthesis of guanidine-containing natural products, and studies in bioorganic chemistry. Physical chemistry research areas include three major areas of focus. The first is thermodynamics/kinetics of hydrogen absorption by metals, alloys, and intermetallic compounds with a view toward storage of hydrogen as a fuel. The second is utilization of TGA, IR, solid-state NMR, and powder X-ray diffraction in determining the structural features of layered zirconium phosphonates containing a mix of chromophores as pendant groups in the interlayer region. Subsequently, photophysics of the interlayer chromophores is explored via UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopy. Third is the development of Co-59 NMR as a probe of metal tetrapyrrole electronic structure and using NMR/MCD spectroscopies to elucidate tetrapyrrole-containing enzyme binding sites.

Bachelor of Science (BS)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
A bachelor's degree in Chemistry prepares you for employment in government and industrial laboratories or for further study in graduate or professional schools. By choosing appropriate electives, a major in chemistry can lead to a career in medicine, dentistry, allied health sciences, law or the business world. Our program focuses on preparing you to succeed in industry and academia by helping you develop the skills to solve chemical problems, to read meaningfully and to utilize properly chemical literature, to work effectively and safely in the laboratory, to communicate scientific ideas and discoveries both orally and in writing, to function well as a member of a team, and to make ethical decisions in the area of science. The chemistry curriculum at Saint Michael's College combines small class sizes, excellent faculty and personal attention with the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience with laboratory instrumentation early in your college career. Chemistry is the study of matter and its changes. As a chemistry major, you will start with the science and math courses that provide the background necessary to study chemistry. Those courses include General Chemistry I &II, Organic Chemistry I &II, Calculus I &II, College Physics I &II, and Integrated Chemical Analysis. In these introductory chemistry courses, you will gain a broad overview of the many different topics in chemistry, including stoichiometry, bonding, gases, the structure of atoms and molecules, acid-base theory, organic synthesis, error analysis, ethical issues in science, and quantitative analysis. Then you will go on to study further in the areas of inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry and chemical instrumentation, where you will learn about thermodynamics, kinetics, quantum chemistry and spectroscopy, the structure and formation of coordination compounds, group theory, some of the major categories of structures that make up biological systems (including peptides/proteins, carbohydrates and nucleic acids), and the chemical instrumentation that can be used to study the structure and function of molecules. Our program is certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS) – a designation that is important to both graduate schools and employers.Students who have received a score of 4 or higher on the Chemistry AP Exam may place out of CH 110 General Chemistry I and receive credit for the course. Students planning graduate studies in chemistry will likely require more math background and should consult with their academic advisors on this matter. In order to receive an ACS-certified degree in Chemistry, students must also complete an approved research experience during the summer or academic year and submit a research report. As a senior, you will research a chemistry topic in great depth as part of your capstone course, Senior Seminar. You will have two options: you may either prepare a major report on the topic or develop a related research proposal (modeled after the process whereby scientists procure funding for research). For examples of recent chemistry senior projects, go to Seminar Projects. The Chemistry Department at Saint Michael's College strongly encourages students to pursue research opportunities based upon their interests and career goals. There are numerous opportunities to conduct research in all areas of chemistry, either with Saint Michael’s faculty members or off campus at national laboratories and at institutions throughout the country. In fact, most chemistry majors graduate having spent one or more summers conducting research. Funds are available to support students who want to work on advanced research during the summer. They also have opportunities to present their research results at local and national meetings.
