WebAdvisor Code - B.BS.CHEC

Chemistry appeals to those students with a broad interest in science and there is an increasing demand for trained scientists who can overlap with other disciplines, such as biology, physics, mathematics, geology or environmental science. Chemistry majors prepares the student for the demands of graduate school, teaching in secondary schools and employment in industry and governmental agencies. Biotechnology and environmental technology are fast growing industries seeking well-trained scientists. Chemists who pursue further education in law, journalism, or public policy are attractive candidates for industry and government jobs.
