Chemistry

Chemistry is often called the central science as it provides the connection between mathematics and the physical, life and applied sciences. Chemistry is the science of molecules and their transformations. Chemists study the composition, properties and reactivity of matter and synthesize and discover new molecules and materials. Since the transformation of matter is integral to the modern world, the study of chemistry can lead to a diverse variety of careers. This degree also prepares the student to enter programs in aerospace, agriculture, biology, engineering, environmental science, and health science.
