Chemistry

Research in Chemistry is central to most areas of modern science and technology. Deepen your understanding of the properties and uses of chemicals, elements, and compounds with a Chemistry major. Studying Chemistry at UON you will have access to our world class facilities and our existing industry relationships, as you explore the primary concepts of chemistry, including basic atomic and molecular structure, the chemistry of carbon compounds as well as principal physical concepts of the discipline. Chemistry impacts and interacts with our lives on a daily basis. Use your extensive knowledge to pursue a career in research, the food or manufacturing industries, or even science communication and journalism.
