Why Chemistry

Why Chemistry

With chemistry often called the "central science," a chemistry background is a powerful tool to launch you into your career. Pursuing a major in chemistry provides a solid foundation for further study in other related fields such as biochemistry, pharmacology, environmental science, geology and chemical engineering, all of which require a substantial chemistry background. Chemistry also provides a solid background for medicine and related fields such as dentistry and pharmacy.
