Faculty Academic Advisors

When you enter the Master of Chemical Sciences (MCS) program you will be assigned an academic advisor based on your chosen concentration. Academic advisors help select courses appropriate for your area of concentration and support your career development by helping build connections on and off campus. The MCS Associate Director will facilitate the selection and assignment of an academic advisor. You should meet with your academic advisor and/or the Associate Director at least once a semester to discuss your academic progress and choose courses for the following semester. The following table summarizes the research areas of Penn Chemistry faculty.
