Ph.D. in Chemistry Overview

The Lehigh Ph.D. program in chemistry consists of approximately one-third formal course work and two-thirds independent study and research. Completion of a Doctor of Philosophy in chemistry normally requires a minimum of four years full-time work after entrance with a bachelor’s degree.

Lehigh chemistry faculty conduct research in areas including analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, organic chemistry, computational chemistry, physical chemistry. Specializations include surface chemistry, nanoparticles, biophysical chemistry, materials, inorganic clusters, and reaction mechanisms.
