Chemistry was the first department at Ursinus College to have a summer research program.
As a charter member of the Intercollegiate Student Chemists Convention (ISC), the Chemistry Department has a long tradition of involving its undergraduates in research. For many years, ISC was the principal venue for student presentation of research work. However, in the past 20 years, our students have been presenting papers and posters in a wide variety of local, regional, and national meetings and have been co-authors on numerous publications.
The department offers one-, two-, and four-credit-hour research/independent study courses and actively encourages our majors to enroll in these offerings or in an off-campus internship. As a result, most of our majors graduate with some degree of research experience.
