Research is a core activity for the faculty members in the chemistry department. Each professor works with several undergraduate students on cutting edge projects. Students have the opportunity to serve as co-authors on publications and give presentations at regional and national conferences such as:

Landmark Summer Research Symposium

Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chamical and Biological Sciences held at UMBC. 

Students can do research during the academic year for credit (CHE 294 or CHE 395Y) or participate in the Goucher Summer Science Research Program, in which students work for 8 weeks and receive a $3,200 stipend. Students interested in summer research should discuss projects with potential faculty mentors no later than February.
