ACS logo

The Villanova Graduate Program in Chemistry is committed to increasing the number of underrepresented minority students in higher education in the chemical sciences.

The program is proud to announce that it has begun a partnership with the American Chemistry Society through its Bridge Program to serve as a transitional master's program to help students prepare for PhD study.

"Through this partnership, Villanova will have the opportunity to help underrepresented minority students improve their credentials to increase their chances of gaining entry to doctoral programs in chemistry," says Graduate Chemistry Program Director Dan Kraut, PhD. "Students apply to the Bridge Program through ACS, and we then gain access to a pool of candidates who may have interest in attending Villanova for their master's degree."
