Why study chemistry?

Chemistry and its influence are everywhere from the materials in the car you drive, to the vitamins you take in the morning, to the laboratories where chemists are developing life-enhancing and diseasecontrolling products.

A solid preparation in chemistry is essential for professionals in most scientific areas.

Niagara University's Department of Biochemistry, Chemistry and Physics offers courses and programs that provide pre-professional training that prepare students for careers in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, pharmacology and other health sciences.

This strong chemistry background also prepares students for graduate school, or positions in business, industry, pollution control, and ecology.
