Most professional and allied health programs such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physician assistant, and physical therapy require prerequisite courses in chemistry and physics.

A chemistry degree will allow you to develop the analytical and problem-solving skills that are universally sought after by graduate programs, professional schools, and employers. With the demand for scientifically literate college graduates being as strong as ever this indicates that a solid foundation in chemistry is a must to stay on the cutting edge of nearly any science or engineering field. Students in these programs will also have opportunities to participate in graduate and undergraduate research.
