University Majors


San Diego State University
Chemistry B.S.

Chemistry is the study of matter. Chemists not only study the nature of all substances that exist, they also create many new substances. Some study the composition, properties, and structure of compounds, and others delight in investigating the reactions in which substances are converted into others. Knowledge of the changes in structure and energy during these reactions, and of how various factors affect the rate of reactions, help chemists to develop theories and techniques to meet the new challenges of our time. Chemists usually specialize in Analytical, Inorganic, Organic, Physical or Biochemistry. The SDSU undergraduate program covers the fundamentals of each of these areas with an emphasis in laboratory study and practical applications of chemistry.
