Of the physical sciences, chemistry is the branch most concerned with the unique properties of matter. These characteristics are often determined by studying the certain intermolecular forces within the matter itself. These interactions can form different substances altogether through chemical reactions.

From indigenous civilizations to modern day empires, North America has plenty of hands-on educational opportunities to offer scholars. Filled with a range of distinct cultures, students can educate themselves in well-rounded way.

Chemistry: The Central Science

“Chemistry: The central science.” That phrase, popularized in a 1977 chemistry textbook, refers to the link that chemistry provides between the physical sciences, mathematics, biological sciences, and the environment. Chemistry and biochemistry play a fundamental role in our everyday lives—from the air we breathe, the water we drink, and soil we walk upon to the food we eat, the medicine that improves our health, and the clothes we wear....

Like mixing things up in the lab? Do you enjoy finding out what something is made of? It's all about chemistry, you know. And that's where our major in chemistry comes in.

As a chemistry student, you'll work with the latest equipment and software. Equipment like the Fourier Transform-Infrared Spectrometer. It provides a “fingerprint” identification for unknown compounds. You'll get to use Wave Function software for Computational Chemistry that visualizes the structure of complex molecules. You can also write and present research findings at national meetings. Maybe you'll get it published.

With your chemistry degree, you'll have lots of career options. You can go to work at places like American Refining Group, Bristol Meyers-Squibb or Eli Lilly. Or, you can go to graduate school. Our graduates have gone on to Penn State University, Indiana University and the University of Nebraska.... [-]

Program Description

Chemistry is the study of matter — anything that has mass and occupies space. Everything you can touch, hold, smell or taste involves chemistry and chemicals. Chemists design new compounds, materials and processes to serve the needs of society. Some examples include new pharmaceuticals to fight disease, industrial catalysts for efficient manufacturing, and leading- edge nanotechnologies to change the world we live in. Chemists study the relationship between the chemical structure of matter and its properties, and predict and explain how matter changes when it reacts to form new substances.
