Kenyon has announced plans to resume in-person instruction for fall semester. Read more here.
The curriculum in chemistry is organized vertically, with students taking courses at one level of sophistication before moving on to the next level. The Department also offers classes designed for students outside the major, which fulfill the College's science distribution requirement.
Current students can use the Class Web Pages and Syllabi page to find their instructor's online course materials. The list of course descriptions is available from the current Course of Study.
Information about the chemistry and biochemistry Senior Capstone is outlined in the academic course catalog. More details about the Senior Capstone are available through the department website or by contacting the chair.
Information about the chemistry honors program is outlined in the academic course catalog. More details about the honors program are available through the department website or by contacting the chair.
Find out more about the co-enrollment policy in Organic Chemistry I & Lab (231 & 233) and Introductory Chemistry II & Lab (124 & 126).
If you have an AP Chem score of 4 or 5, you may enroll directly into Chem 122 (Chemical Principles). Please ensure your scores are on file with the Kenyon Registrar. Alternatively, you may qualify for Chem 122 by enrolling in Chem 121, 9:00a section; the first assignment in Chem 121 serves as a placement assessment for Chem 122, and if your placement is high enough you will have the opportunity to switch to Chem 122.
