Chemistry


Chemisty is a science which touches many fields of study. Employment options for those with a bachelor's degree in chemistry are many and varied. Among the new professions which have arisen because of the increasing complexity and interdisciplinary nature of scientific and technological problem-solving is that made up of chemists whose interests are in management, marketing and production rather than the conventional research and development. A knowledge of German and computer programming usually are recommended for all chemistry majors.
