NEW! Chemistry and Biochemistry Seminar Requirement

As part of the senior comprehensive requirement for all majors in our department, students must attend a total of 12 department seminars over 4 semesters (junior and senior years). A reduction of 3 to this total of 12 is granted for students who study off campus or any student who was a junior or senior during the Spring 2020 semester. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has a long tradition of faculty and students meeting together with scientists from outside our university. These seminars have provided and will continue to provide exposure to science beyond what students see in our courses and on- campus research as well as opportunities to build community. That dual goal of exposure to cutting edge science and building community is one way our department supports our commitment to our students’ professional and career development.

Seminars in the age of COVID-19

We are not able to host speakers for seminars as has been our practice for many years.
However, the department remains committed to our dual goals for the seminar requirement of
exposing our students to science they would not otherwise see in their coursework and research
at DePauw as well as building community among our students and faculty. To achieve those
goals during the Fall 2021 semester we will continue to provide a variety of virtual opportunities including
virtual seminar speakers, approved webinars, and virtual alumni panels.
The department will provide links here to approved virtual events. Students will work with
their advisors to record when they attend an event. You should expect to provide some kind of
evidence that you actively engaged in the event. Come back to this page to find events you want
to attend. We will also send you announcements of events.
