Chemistry

Chemistry is all around us, and our quality of life is intimately linked to developments of new materials and to a better understanding of all biological processes. A degree in chemistry will give you a unique insight into areas that are central to biology, geology, materials science, medicine, environmental science, and many branches of engineering. A chemistry degree can lead to career paths in professions such as medicine, pharmacology, agriculture, chemical engineering, journalism, law, forensic science, and biochemistry. Many graduates decide to continue their education after completing their first degree and over half of our graduates attend medical school or graduate school. Students who plan to become high school science teachers may choose to earn dual degrees in chemistry and education. Please note that some of the careers below will require further education.
