Chemistry Graduate Program

Seminars, Lectures and Colloquia

During the regular academic year the Department sponsors a number of lectures given by invited speakers, including the Dains (organic), Brewster (inorganic), the Davidson (physical), Werner (analytical) and Schowen Lectures. In addition, the local chapter of the American Chemical Society sponsors a number of lectures each year, and Departmental seminars and Divisional colloquia are held regularly.

Every graduate student is expected to attend all of the named lectures as an essential part of his or her graduate education, and should be a regular participant in seminars and colloquia in his or her area of specialization.
