Chemistry at Bennington is built on four courses that integrate, rather than separate, general chemistry and organic chemistry to help you learn of the key aspects of both subjects. The structure of these classes allows for the inclusion of special topics that fall outside of the realms of either general or organic chemistry, but which can teach students current research and discoveries in other branches of chemistry. All courses include readings from the primary literature, writing components (especially in response to articles and concerning lab work), and discussion-based class sessions. The curricula are designed to be useful for science students pursuing a variety of goals: advanced chemistry, biology, other physical sciences, and pre-medical plans.
At Bennington, you design your own course of study and work, taking full advantage of the College’s resources both inside and outside the classroom. This process goes beyond the bounds of a traditional major. You identify one or more areas of interest that spark your intellectual curiosity and provide a foundation for your academic work and fieldwork, and you pursue that work with ongoing guidance from your faculty. This is your Plan.
