Chemistry is the science concerned with the properties, structure, and transformation of matter at the molecular level. Chemistry affects our daily lives at every level by providing the technology for new materials, understanding the causes of diseases, discovering new drugs, improving food production, and developing environmentally friendly energy resources. Without the work of chemists there would be no cell phones, no plastic materials of any kind, no efficient method to control agricultural pests or treatment for infectious diseases.
An education in chemistry will allow you to choose from many exciting careers in the public and private sector. Some chemists work as researchers in chemical companies, hospitals, or universities, others as teachers in schools, colleges, or universities. Chemists are employed by NASA, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Center for Disease Control and many other local and federal agencies. Many chemists work in the private sector in product development, process control, and production management. There are many opportunities for chemists in business management, law, and firms, or regulatory agencies.
