Chemistry is known as the central science because it lies between Physics and Mathematics on the one hand, and Biological and Earth Sciences on the other. It is concerned with matter and how it changes. As a chemist, you will study the structure, composition, behaviour, and energetics of substances. You will explore what happens when atoms and molecules react, and try to understand the underlying changes that occur. You will observe phenomena in the world around us, and your discoveries could impact our everyday lives. Chemistry course is offered at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg .
Chemistry trains you to think logically, analytically, and creatively. Basic Chemistry skills have applications in patent law, commerce, management and teaching, drawing on the language of Mathematics and the laws of Physics to describe the world from a chemical, biological, and physical point of view. Chemistry plays a vital part in our understanding of the structure and interactions of matter in the universe.
