In contemporary society, it is evident that the science of chemistry is no longer confined to the research laboratory, but is exerting a profound impact on social, political, and economic decisions at the local, national, and international levels. Chemistry is the recognized physical basis for the biological and psychological sciences and is important in every effort of our industrialized society. Students wishing to pursue a career in the chemical profession, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, laboratory technology, or the environmental sciences are encouraged to consider the major program in chemistry with appropriate minors in other disciplines for their preparatory work.

The Department of Natural and Physical Sciences welcomes partnerships with appropriate businesses and government agencies to place students into internship positions in their major or a related field. The Department of Natural and Physical Sciences actively encourages students to work in such internship positions and considers internships to be an integral part of the curriculum.
