There are three important reasons why people study chemistry.

  • First of all, chemistry has a huge application within the realms of society. The development of science with a view to save and extend lives, healing sick people and inventing new drugs is just the first reason why people study it.
It is this huge application to society that draws people in. All areas of modern technology are affected by chemistry, and modern technology is incredibly important in today's society.

  • The second reason is that chemistry is an incredibly intellectual thing to study, and be involved with. Chemistry allows for an explanation of the material world that surrounds us, and this understanding is incredibly important in many areas of society. It's important if we as a society are going to be able to progress in terms of said society and in terms of science.
  • Chemistry also overlaps in a range of other fields. For example, chemistry overlaps quite a lot with biology, something touched upon in the first point. This is in the area of medicine. Medicine is used in a biological practice but is created thanks to the study and understanding of chemistry.
Chemistry is involved in practically all fields of science and many parts of the industrial world. The manufacturing and material world is reliant on chemistry, as well, making it a huge driving force for capitalism and societal advancement.

Chemistry's role in science offers huge benefits and a promising future for students. That's why more people than ever are looking at choosing and studying chemistry at university. It offers a wide range of opportunities in a wide range of fields. For more information talk to universities about what the chemistry courses they offer.
