Welcome to UGA Chemistry!

The Department at the University of Georgia offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry. Our undergraduates have the option of obtaining an ACS-certified B.S. in Chemistry. We graduate around 40 B.S. Chemists each year. Our graduate degree program is a research-intensive program with an emphasis on coursework required for in-depth training in a particular project. We also emphasize interdisciplinary training to prepare our graduates for multiple career paths. Through our links, you can find out about both our undergraduate and graduate programs, how to apply for admission, the curricula offered, and the research interests of our faculty.
