What is Chemistry?
Chemistry is known as “the central science” due to the reliance of biology, physics, engineering, and other disciplines on chemical knowledge. The BS in chemistry offers a strong background in all major areas of chemistry: Inorganic, Organic, Analytical, Biochemical, and Physical. This option also best allows a student to emphasize broad and deep chemical knowledge in a career that requires in-depth chemistry experience.
