Chemists are people 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 in areas such as engineering, pharmaceuticals and material production. A student planning to complete a bachelor’s degree in chemistry at a senior institution would be advised to take the following courses. If the student intends to complete a bachelor’s degree in chemistry education (for high school teaching) he/she would be advised to take secondary education courses as well.
