As a chemistry major, you’ll study matter. You’ll learn what matter is made of, how it operates, and how to manipulate it to improve our world. Chemistry students spend time in the classroom and in the laboratory experimenting according to the scientific method, practicing titrations, exploring different chemicals, reporting findings (writing and speaking professionally), and ultimately, learning how to draw meaningful conclusions from empirical, scientific data. Chemistry instructors will also challenge your creativity, pushing you to make keen observations about the world, to imagine new ways to alter its chemistry, and to develop controlled experiments to test your hypotheses.
Successful chemistry students have solid mathematical skills, from algebra to calculus, and a passion for studying the natural world. In modern-day chemistry work, computing skills are also increasingly helpful for using industry software, designing digital models, creating reports, and other digital practices. Chemistry degrees apply to a wide range of fields, including pharmaceuticals as one of the most demanding industries, as well as biotechnology, engineering, electronics/computing, alternative energy, and research. Many chemistry students find work in government agencies, such as the EPA and the DEA. Local municipal departments also need chemists to evaluate drinking water, identify unknown substances, and much more.
