At Saint Mary’s, we’re devoted to training the next generation of chemists. In our diverse, tight-knit community, you’ll gain a foundational understanding of chemicals, their properties, and their possibilities. You’ll have numerous opportunities to make discoveries alongside our world-renowned faculty or while studying abroad. Our students have helped research everything from Saint Mary’s seasonal swamp to the toxic waste beneath Alameda Island. With Saint Mary’s small class sizes and discussion-driven courses, you’ll receive plenty of personalized attention as you pursue your unique interests and aspirations.
