You can do anything with a chemistry degree! Chemists make new materials, create revolutionary drugs, develop sensors for the Mars Rover, and are working on solutions to our most pressing issues – alternative energy, biodegradable plastics, pollution control, climate change, on-the-spot disease diagnosis, solar energy conversion, and curing cancer. A degree in chemistry will teach you to think about and analyze the world around you. And, importantly, a chemistry degree opens the door to a variety of career options.
