The Ph.D. Program in Chemistry at the Graduate Center is a collaboration of over 120 faculty at seven CUNY campuses and the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center creating new knowledge at the forefront of the chemical enterprise centered in the world’s most dynamic city.  As the central science, chemistry is at the nexus of important societal challenges. Our faculty and students see these challenges as opportunities to creatively harness the transformational power of chemistry to affect solutions.  The culture of CUNY involves smaller research groups than at other New York City institutions which allows for greater mentoring and interaction with faculty.  The scale of CUNY provides both access to state of the art facilities and a rich diversity of expertise for chemical research.
