As a central discipline, chemistry is critical for making significant positive impacts on human life. Chemistry is critical to solving today's issues such as faster and cheaper drug development, cleaner and more economical fuel sources, safer air and drinking water, biotechnology to improve health and food sources, and green industrial processes to prevent pollution. A chemistry degree can lead you to fascinating and high-paying careers where you can create new drugs, new materials, new technologies, new theories, new policies, or new businesses. Billion-dollar industries such as pharmaceuticals, electronics, household and personal care products hire chemists in quality assurance, technical sales, research project management, and many other positions.
Our chemistry curriculum provides broad and comprehensive training in all areas of modern chemistry, including coursework in the major sub-disciplines of chemistry: organic, inorganic, physical, biological, and analytical.
The undergraduate degree in chemistry at Fayetteville State University is designed to prepare students for professional careers as chemists, either upon graduation or after graduate study in chemistry or related fields. In addition, the chemistry degree may serve as a basis for a wide range of career choices outside of chemistry, including but not limited to: materials science, medicine and other healthcare related occupations, pharmacology, secondary school teaching, environmental science, and patent law.
