Major or Minor in Chemistry

Explore what our world is made of

As a chemistry major, you will explore the structure and properties of matter — the physical “stuff” that makes up our world, ranging from molecular structures and nanoparticles to DNA and high-performance carbon fiber composites. Along the way, you'll experiment with existing substances by modifying their properties or producing new materials to be applied in fields including medicine, biotechnology, aerospace, and wearable electronics.
