Chemistry is often described as the central science. A background of math and physics can be used to describe molecules and the biological systems these molecules make up. Chemistry relates to everything we do, everything we eat, everything we observe. These systems can be identified, quantified, duplicated, described, and explained. (The 2017 Nobel Prize went to scientists describing a high-resolution biomolecule's structure!) An understanding of the basics can be enhanced at Saint Anselm with research and internship opportunities.
