|Description:||Chemistry is often called the central science because of its relevance to so many other disciplines. Understanding the composition and properties of matter, as well as the manner in which one substance is transformed into another, is essential to the study of our physical and natural worlds. As such, chemistry is often a starting point for many different careers in science. A variety of programs are available, ranging from focused studies to interdisciplinary options to suit the interests of the student.
A chemistry degree involves considerable breadth of training in the major branches of chemistry. These include organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and biological chemistry. In addition to establishing a solid foundation in the fundamental principles of chemistry, students who undertake a chemistry degree develop essential skills that include problem solving, critical thinking, organization, data analysis, and written and oral communication. The laboratories associated with courses develop the necessary experience with laboratory procedures, equipment and safety, and serve to reinforce the concepts learned in lecture.
