The Science of Everything

Stem cell research. New cancer treatments. Alternative energy solutions. Nanotechnology. Microelectronics. So many of the most promising innovations and ideas of the 21st Century depend on the work of chemists and biochemists.

Chemistry majors choose concentrations in marketing, management, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, bioengineering, or fuel cells—a track to prepare for a career in alternative energy. Or you could propose your own curriculum.

Our Biochemistry majors take additional classes in biology and learn life sciences at the molecular and cellular levels, so they are extremely well prepared for careers in the chemical, pharmaceutical, or biotechnology fields.

The Center of Everything

There's a good reason why chemists/biochemists work everywhere from the Mayo Clinic to the FBI. Chemistry is, after all, "the central science." It's the study of all matter and it's inextricably linked to all the other sciences and engineering disciplines.

Job titles for chemists and biochemists are as diverse as the assignments:

  • Analytical Chemist
  • Cell Research Chemist
  • Food Chemist
  • Medicinal Chemist
  • Pharmaceutical Chemist
  • Physical Chemist
