Chemistry is an enabling science that provides a foundation for fields such as medicine, technology and environmental science.
Chemistry encompasses the synthesis and study of molecules and materials, the exploration of their properties and the development of ways to use them in real life.
Gain advanced level knowledge and technical capabilities across experimental, physical, organic, and inorganic chemistry which you can apply to deepen your understanding of scientific fields such as nanoscience, medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry or synthetic chemistry.
Undertaking advanced coursework in chemistry will strengthen your problem-solving, analytical, and critical thinking capabilities, which are essential skills for future work.
Deepen your scientific expertise by combining your specialisation with a major or minors from a wide range of science disciplines. Or broaden your skill set even further by choosing from 46 minors in other study areas, including languages, communication, design and economics.
In your final year, you’ll undertake your own independent research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor and present your findings to the scientific community.
With a qualification in advanced science, you’ll be well placed to progress into a higher degree by research and kickstart a rewarding research career.
You will also be equipped to pursue a diverse range of career opportunities in traditional and emerging fields of science. These include roles as a pharmaceutical scientist, laboratory manager, toxicologist, quality-assurance specialist, environmental chemist, forensic chemist, science communicator or academic.
