Chemistry is often called the central science as it provides the connection between mathematics and the physical, life and applied sciences. Chemistry is the science of molecules and their transformations. Chemists study the composition, properties, and reactivity of matter and synthesize and discover new molecules and materials.

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 research and development 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 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

“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?”​
