Chemistry, often labeled the "Central Science," exists at the interface of physical sciences such as physics and astronomy, and life sciences
such as biology and medicine. Accordingly, a degree in chemistry prepares the dedicated student for myriad career opportunities including
careers in drug design and development, toxicology, pharmacology, environmental science, synthetic chemistry, nuclear chemistry, and health
science. Furthermore, a background in chemistry provides a strong foundation for students pursuing degrees in medicine, dentistry, education,
A degree in Chemistry from Western Wyoming Community College provides the dedicated student with a strong scientific background that will open
doors in a variety of academic and career paths. The inherently interdisciplinary nature of chemistry and it's broad applicability make a
degree in chemistry an excellent choice for students seeking employment at the B.S. level, continued graduate studies in a range of fields
(e.g. chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology, biochemistry), or acceptance in to professional programs (e.g. medical school, dental school,
intellectual property law).
