Chemistry

A bachelor’s degree is a four-year undergraduate degree and is the standard for higher education throughout most of the world. Bachelor’s degrees can be earned at state universities, at private universities, at community colleges and via online universities.

Chemistry is often referred to as the central science because it seems to unify the other branches of natural science together, including biology, geology, and physics. Many believe the origins of chemistry to be traced back several thousands of years, to the practice of alchemy.

Spanning 23 countries, North America is continent filled with educational opportunity. Students have the opportunity to learn multiple languages and develop an understanding of vastly different cultures.
