Description: In your chemistry courses at UFV, you will study the fundamental principles of the discipline and will also learn how these principles are used to solve problems and develop new products for today’s consumer-oriented society. UFV offers a major and minor in chemistry as part of its Bachelor of Science degree program. Some students take lower-level chemistry courses as part of a science degree or as preparation for another program.

UFV chemistry graduates have gone on to enjoy rewarding careers in many areas including employment with hi-tech industries, in the biotechnology sector and government laboratories, or as chemistry teachers at the secondary-school level. A background in chemistry is also useful if you’re intending to pursue post-graduate studies in areas such as chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, pharmacy, veterinary science, or engineering.
