Food. Medicine. Plastics. Computers. The science of chemistry plays a vital role in the innovation and production of every man-made material. As a Chemistry major from Lewis University, you will study complex scientific issues, from the chemical basis of life to the negative effects of chemical pollutants, through classroom learning and hands-on lab work - and be prepared to create the next generation of the everyday world we experience.
