In simplest terms, chemistry is the science of matter. Anything that can be touched, tasted, smelled, seen or felt is made of chemicals.
Chemists are the unsung heroes in the sciences who transform the everyday materials around us into amazing things. Some chemists work on cures for cancer while others monitor the ozone protecting us from the sun. Still others discover new materials to make our Homes warmer in the winter, or new textiles to be used in the latest fashions. The knowledge gained through the study of chemistry opens many career pathways.
The basic building block f或者其他科学, chemistry blends well with other specialties. A chemistry major can be combined with courses in biology, 地质, 或者其他科学, 企业管理, or communications to develop careers in such areas as biomedical research, 药品销售, or science communications.
化学 seldom makes the top 10 list of glamorous careers. But for people with inquisitive minds who are creative, 持续的, interested in solving problems, 独立思考, 善于处理细节, have keen powers of observation, and follow logical paths of reasoning, chemistry offers challenging and quite fulfilling career opportunities.
