Chemistry students at Widener benefit from small class sizes where they work closely with faculty.  Students also have access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and computers.  An independent study project in the junior or senior year provides each student an opportunity to investigate a topic of their choice in greater depth than is possible in a regular class.  For more information on the Chemistry programs at Widener, contact Dr. Loyd Bastin at 610/499-4022 or


Undergraduate research is an important part of the chemistry curriculum.   Every student participates in at least one semester of research with a faculty mentor in the department. Most students then give a presentation at the campus wide annual student projects day.  Many students also give these presentations at regional or national meetings.
