Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it undergoes. The study of chemistry is broad and far-reaching, the perfect discipline to be part of a liberal arts and sciences education such as Albright’s.
There are so many questions that are answered by chemistry – and even more that are yet to be answered. In our modern lives, we are living longer and more productive lives through chemistry. Of course, the pathway to some of those inventions has been littered with the casualties of the misuse or misunderstanding of chemistry. With the knowledge this history in chemistry provides, humans can move forward using chemistry to benefit the planet with concern for the environment and its limited resources.
If you have an innate curiosity and a scientifically oriented mindset, you could choose chemistry or biochemistry as your path of study. The solution to problems as diverse as cures for diseases and answers to world energy needs, just to name a few, will be unlocked through innovative research that includes chemical principles.
