We live in a chemical world. From the water we drink, to the air we breathe, to every aspect of the roads we travel and the homes we live in, we spend our lives in chemical environments. In fact, chemistry is often called the “Central Science” because it touches on every other field of scientific inquiry. So it makes sense that you can carry a knowledge of chemistry into a widely diverse range of career opportunities in Biotechnology, Chemical Analysis, Chemical Engineering, Chemical Technology, Criminology, Education, Energy, Environmental Science, Industrial Chemistry, Manufacturing, Medical Research, Medicine, Metallurgy, Toxicology and Pharmacology to name a few.
Chemistry students study composition, structure, properties, and reactions of matter with emphasis on atomic and molecular systems. The major is designed to meet the needs of students whose principal interest is in chemistry, biochemistry, or medicine. Students learn from each other as well in our small classes encourage collaboration and make a challenging subject easier and more enjoyable to study. The Associate in Science degree in Chemistry for Transfer provides a clearly articulated curricular track for students who wish to transfer to baccalaureate degree programs at University of Wyoming.
