Majoring in Chemistry involves the study of the composition, structure, properties, and reactions of matter, especially of atomic and molecular systems. What are the effects of chemicals used in the home and workplaces? How are unknown compounds identified? How can you speed up chemical processes in an organism? You’ll sharpen your analytical, problem-solving, scientific reasoning, critical thinking, communication and laboratory skills as you work towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.
You’ll also have real opportunities beyond the classroom, in activities such as working as a laboratory assistant, participating in the Tetra Delta science club and completing internships. And because we design our chemistry program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a career as a chemist, pharmacist, chemical engineer, environmental scientist, food scientist, industrial researcher, laboratory technician, patent attorney, medical professional or other professional in a chemistry-related field.
