Chemistry, a central science, serves as the basis for understanding the natural and physical sciences. A college graduate with a major in chemistry or biochemistry is prepared for a wide choice of science-related careers.

The chemical and pharmaceutical industries provide opportunities for applied chemical research; medicine and the health science fields emphasize the biological aspect of advances in chemistry.
