Chemistry is often called “the central science” as it connects mathematics and physics with natural sciences such as biology and astronomy. Chemistry is the science of natural and synthetic molecules and materials. Chemists study the properties and reactivity of matter and create and discover new chemicals.

Since the transformation of matter is integral to the modern world, the study of chemistry can lead to a diverse variety of careers. These include R & D jobs in environmental; materials or forensics chemistry; energy production; biotechnology and medicinal chemistry; and the food, cosmetic and textile industries, as well as employment in sales, management, law and consulting.

Students completing Chemistry at University of Arizona are prepared upon graduation to work as chemists in academic, industrial and governmental settings. In addition, these programs of study provide an excellent foundation for advanced studies in chemistry, biochemistry or related graduate programs as well as professional schools in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and osteopathy.

As chemistry is primarily an experimental science, research opportunities are also available in analytical, organic, inorganic, physical, and biochemistry.

Courses include:

  • Principles of Modern Chemistry
  • Mathematical Physics for Chemistry

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
