Chemistry is at the heart of every facet of life.
Chemistry has a role in almost every aspect of our lives. The influence of chemical science ranges from the design of new drugs, to curing diseases, to the development of self-cleaning materials, to the advanced dyes and plastics used in Australia's $20 note.
During this course you will gain an understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of chemistry as it applies to other sciences such as forensic, biological, physics and the materials sciences. Along the way you might choose to study broadly or to specialise in your area of interest.
