In addition to the program’s core course work, students have the opportunity to become involved in faculty-led research at early stages of their undergraduate career. In the last five years, faculty in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Program have published 30 publications, which include more than 65 Bard undergraduate coauthorships. All of the faculty members in the program also conduct research with Bard undergraduates (an average of 28 students each summer over the last five years) as part of the Bard Summer Research Institute. Many students in the program present their research work as talks and posters each year at National and Regional Conferences.
The Program has an excellent record of student placement after graduation. Chemistry and Biochemistry alumni have pursued studies at the graduate and medical school level. Others have obtained employment in academia, science editing, and as industry professionals in pharmaceutical, manufacturing, biotech, and health-related fields.
