"Life … is a relationship between molecules." -Linus Pauling
Chemistry is often called the Central Science. It is a growing field with many interdisciplinary opportunities in biology, physics, medicine and engineering. Many chemistry majors find careers in these fields as teachers, technicians, researchers, engineers and health professionals.
According to a recent study, 40% of students earning a bachelor’s or master’s in chemistry started at a two-year college. At Bellevue College, the Chemistry department strives to help students acquire the scientific skills necessary to accomplish their educational and career goals. It is our goal to provide a supportive learning and teaching environment for all students so they may continue on a path of success to a 4-year college/university or professional program.
