The Chemistry Department of Williams College provides coordinated programs of studies in all of the fundamental fields of chemistry as part of a liberal arts education. These make use of the facilities of the Thompson Chemistry Laboratory, the Morley Science Laboratories, and the South Science Building and furnish thorough preparation for graduate study in chemistry, chemical engineering, biochemistry, environmental science, medicine, and the medical sciences. The Department is accredited by the American Chemical Society.
Our courses lead students from a wide variety of secondary school science backgrounds rapidly into advanced levels, and develop a foundation and perspective for research activities and an awareness of contemporary chemistry. All members of the faculty are available to students for assistance and guidance regarding their progress and their plans for the future.
