Chemistry (CHEM)
Chemistry is the science that seeks to understand the structure and composition of matter and the changes that it undergoes. The atomic/molecular perspective of chemistry provides fundamental insight into the macroscopic world of materials and organisms. Chemists apply this insight in many ways, such as the synthesis of new substances with useful technological or therapeutic properties and the discovery of new analytical methods that can be used in medicine and environmental science. Coursework in chemistry introduces students to fundamental chemical principles, teaches students to apply these principles broadly and effectively, and enables students to evaluate critically the impact of chemistry on society.
