Student Profiles

BCC’s graduate students are geographically diverse. Domestic students come from every region in the United States, and our international students comprise 30% of all graduate students. Our student body is 57% male and 43% female. Many students enroll in the Boston College Chemistry Ph.D. program immediately following their undergraduate studies, and others begin their Ph.D. studies after working in a chemistry-related industry. This represents a partial list of the many universities and companies from which our current students come:
