Chemistry is often referred to as the central science, because chemistry plays a vital role in most other science disciplines. Consequently,  an undergraduate degree in chemistry prepares students for a wide variety of careers, both in and out of the laboratory. A chemistry degree can lead to career paths in professions such as medicine, pharmacology, agriculture, chemical engineering, journalism, law, forensic science, and biochemistry. Many graduates decide to continue their education after completing their first degree and many of our graduates attend medical school or graduate school.
