Dedicated to Both Teaching & Cutting Edge Research

The Tufts University Chemistry Department provides an exciting and intellectually stimulating environment for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in cutting edge research projects that encompass the many diverse interests of the faculty and reflects the highly interdisciplinary nature of chemistry and modern scientific research. While drawing heavily on the traditional chemistry subdisciplines, and assuring a well ground expertise in the fundamentals, we also provide the opportunity to explore beyond the traditional boundaries, from nano to planetary scales and atomic to biomolecular complexity! >> Download Department Brochure
