Chemistry is an experimental science that has as its goal the development of an atomic and molecular interpretation of the properties and behavior of matter.

chemistry labThe fundamental nature and extensive application of chemistry to other fields of science gives the chemistry graduate a variety of career choices and advanced study opportunities. Among these are industrial chemistry, government service, sales or supervision, secondary school teaching, and entry into graduate or professional schools. A program of maximum flexibility can best serve this wide variety of potential interests.
