The Department of Chemistry here at SMU has a long history of excellence in research and teaching. Whether aspiring to a career in industry, medicine, or academia, the comprehensive curriculum provides students with the necessary knowledge and experience to excel in their future careers. The faculty maintain active research programs, attend numerous national and international meetings in their fields, and publish in major journals. The Ph.D. program, established in 2004, builds on the faculty expertise and emphasizes three major areas: 

  1. Organic, Medicinal, and Bioorganic Chemistry
  2. Materials and Polymer Chemistry
  3. Theoretical and Computational Chemistry

Our programs both have the goal of maximizing each student's knowledge in the chosen field of study and preparing him or her for research and a future career in academia and/or private industry.
