Chemistry is an enabling science that provides a foundation for fields such as medicine, technology and environmental science.
Chemistry encompasses the synthesis and study of molecules and materials, the exploration of their properties and the development of ways to use them in real life.
Gain advanced level knowledge and technical capabilities in general, physical, organic and inorganic chemistry, which you can apply to deepen your understanding of nanoscience, medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry or synthetic chemistry.
Studying advanced chemistry will strengthen your problem-solving, analytical and critical thinking capabilities, which are essential skills for future work.
You will be equipped to pursue a diverse range of career opportunities. These include roles as a research scientist, pharmaceutical scientist, laboratory manager, toxicologist, quality-assurance specialist, environmental chemist, forensic chemist, science communicator or teacher.
Alternatively, continue into a PhD or other higher degree by research and kickstart your career in research.
This major is accredited by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute.
