The curriculum in chemistry provides broad knowledge of the field as a part of the liberal education offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. Chemistry course work is a sound foundation for students interested in advanced work in chemistry or related sciences, particularly such fields as biochemistry, geochemistry, materials science, and molecular biology. One strength of the program is the opportunity undergraduates have to participate in the activities of a dynamic research group that considers problems extending well beyond textbook instruction. Major and non major students alike can enjoy this experience of scientific inquiry. One to two years of preparatory course work typically precede the research experience. Careers: Career opportunities for chemists are available in education, government, and industry (see the annual October issue of Chemical and Engineering News). A bachelor’s degree in chemistry provides a good background for advanced study in such fields as atmospheric science, biochemistry, biology, environmental sciences, forensic science, geochemistry, geological sciences, pharmacy, pharmacology, physiology, materials science, medicine, medicinal chemistry, metallurgy, molecular biology, neuroscience, oceanography. Chemists also find jobs in science writing, public relations, personnel, plant production, sales, management, safety management, market research, patent law, and financial analysis.
