The Bradley Advantage

The five-year chemistry program sharpens your research abilities as you gain deeper knowledge of the science. You’re exposed to lab research as a first-year student, then you can work with faculty on research teams as a sophomore. As a participant in the integrated program, you spend three summers working on research projects. You begin graduate-level courses during your third year, which also is when you begin graduate thesis research.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s chemistry program successfully prepares you to advance in professional settings. In recent years, all graduates found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They are working at places such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Advanced Technology Services. Others are attending graduate school at universities such as Iowa State University, Miami University-Ohio and North Carolina State University.
