When you study a Bachelor of Science with a chemistry major you'll examine and build on the key concepts of basic atomic and molecular structure, fundamental inorganic chemistry and underlying physical concepts.

Almost everything you touch in the modern world will have a chemist's input at some stage. At its most basic, chemistry is the manipulation of atoms and molecules for real world applications and it plays a key role in virtually all sciences.
