Chemistry deals with the nature of all substances and the changes that occur therein. It ranges from the study of the structure of atoms and molecules to that of the reactions occurring in living organisms. The study of chemistry can provide knowledge that will give students a greater understanding and appreciation of the world in which they live. In addition, a knowledge of chemistry is a great asset in areas such as biology, physics, and health-related fields. It is a logical basis for premedical training.
Students majoring in chemistry find employment in a variety of fields including research, development, analysis and testing, consulting, forensic, quality control, teaching, writing and administration.
This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses for students to follow, including milestones that should be met each year.
