Chemists study the composition and chemical behavior of matter, the physical components of our world, including living cells. Chemistry involves a wide array of knowledge and skills, both theoretical and practical, which enable chemists to study matter at the molecular level. This understanding allows chemist to synthesize new molecules with specialized properties, to do compositional analysis to verify the identity of substances and to make predictions about the chemical behaviors of matter in new situations and applications.

Students completing an undergraduate Chemistry major will be well prepared for careers in synthetic chemistry, materials science, environmental science, polymer science, fuel science and many other areas in which knowledge and skills in chemistry are needed.
