Information for Students

About our department and major

Information for Prospective Students (our current admissions brochure).

(Hopefully the two documents are consistent, but if not, the catalog trumps the web page.)


Summer Research Opportunities.

Summer Course Approval Procedures for getting Haverford credit for Chemistry courses taken at other institutions.

For chemistry majors

Writing Guidelines. This document is a two-page overview of general rules for scientific writing (or at least, for chemical writing). It may be supplemented by additional writing instruction from individual course instructors.
