“Nothing can be more certain than this: that we are just beginning to learn something of the wonders of the world on which we live and move and have our being.” – William Ramsay, 1852 to 1916

The Central Science

Chemistry is sometimes called the “central science” because it connects other sciences to each other, such as biology, physics, medicine and environmental science.

Chemistry helps you understand the world around you and is a popular field of study among students interested in medicine, pharmacology, scientific research or industry.

The chemistry department offers a chemistry major and minor and also offers a chemistry major with a concentration in Education, Medicinal Chemistry or Forensic science.

A Chemistry degree from SPU provides you with the skills to enter the workforce in industry, pharmaceutical research or numerous types of graduate programs.
