Chemistry Unit

Chemistry is the basic science that deals with the composition and transformation of matter. It often involves hands-on or computational experiments to understand and control matter at the molecular level.  Chemistry is also central to major societal issues including health care, energy, protection of the environment and the provision of food, shelter and a vast array of industrial products.

At Marian University College (MARUCO), academic staffs bring their passion for chemistry and environmental science into the classroom-bringing to students innovative teaching methods and courses that reflect what chemistry is, and how it is practiced today. As a student studying chemistry, you will discover the many ways chemistry impacts daily life. 


Careers in Chemistry

Traditional careers in chemistry include teaching at secondary-school or University level, conducting research in academic, industry or government labs, and working with government agencies.  Chemists are also employed in many industries, including pharmaceuticals, manufacturing (chemicals, plastics, food, paper, polymers, paints and coatings, adhesives, detergents, etc.), petroleum and energy. Many chemists work in government research, forensics, or analytical laboratories. In addition, chemists graduate with skills that are valuable in careers ranging from computing and information science to patent law, marketing and public policy.
