Chemistry

A chemistry course is your ticket to understanding the world around you! It can also lead to an exciting career. From agriculture to zoology, from production to sales, in a forest, on a highway, or in a hospital, chemistry is everywhere and touches our lives in countless ways!

Chemistry can be interesting and fun, too. Understanding chemicals whether those in your own home or at a chemical plant will be important to you throughout your life. You will need to make decisions about what cars to buy, medications to take, and legislation that affects your environment. Having a good understanding of the chemistry involved will help you make the best choice for your lifestyle.

A career in chemistry will provide you the opportunity to contribute in many specialized areas: the environment, manufacturing, medicine, transportation, polymers, teaching, safety, and law enforcement, for example. Work activities for the chemist can vary from collecting field samples to writing for a technical journal.
