Choosing to pursue a degree in Furman University’s Chemistry Department will prepare you to solve global challenges related to health, security, and energy independence. Our students work on cutting-edge research in a laboratory environment, and are exposed to modern instrumentation and technology.


The program is intended to extend the broad introductory curriculum which constitutes the B.S. requirements to the master's level and help undergraduates get involved earlier and more extensively in research. At the graduate level, formal courses are kept to a minimum. The emphases on the research experience and the development of facility with current literature are structured to prepare students for participation in doctoral programs. 

Our students are among the nation's leaders in publishing and presenting their findings on contemporary problems including:

  • Preparing and characterizing novel nanomaterials
  • Understanding the chemistry of living systems
  • Developing new energy technologies
  • Expanding the toolbox for chemical and medical diagnostics
  • Synthesizing natural products and pharmaceuticals

With a degree from Furman, you'll be prepared to pursue an advanced degree or career at some of the nation's top graduate schools, medical schools and businesses.
