Chemistry is often called the central science since it is the underlying basis for understanding medicine, biology, pharmacology, nutrition, engineering, environmental science, and many other disciplines. An understanding of chemistry is also important for understanding many policy issues and topics in the news relating to health, energy, and technology. The chemistry minor at Southern Virginia provides an excellent foundation for students preparing for careers in medicine, dentistry, research, pharmacy, and related areas of study.
