Chemistry is everywhere, from the cleaning products in the supermarket and colourful toys and clothes to the pills or ointment the doctor may prescribe for a rash.
Chemistry, therefore, is a huge part of everyday life. Nylon and plastic are indispensable to modern society, but they are artificially produced as a result of chemical research. HIV medicine and the development of pharmaceuticals in general are other examples of the universal importance of chemistry. Knowledge of chemistry is also vital in dealing with the environment.
In the minor in Chemistry, you will receive a broad introduction into the many fields of chemistry. A large part of the teaching takes place in the laboratory, where you yourself will experience how chemical compounds act and react.
The minor is primarily for students with majors in other scientific subjects within the natural sciences.
