Chemistry - University of Bath

Develop practical and theoretical skills across all areas of chemistry, leading to a broad range of chemical and non-chemical careers. As a chemist, you can move seamlessly between areas such as forensics, drug development and nanotechnology. You’ll be able to keep your options open on which area to specialise in until later in the degree. In the first two years, you’ll get a broad introduction to all areas of chemistry while developing the practical and theoretical skills modern chemists need. This includes understanding the theories of chemical behaviour and how they are applied. You will also develop skills in experimental chemistry and in designing experiments to test hypotheses. You can specialise in a particular field in later years through optional units and a final year project. You’ll draw upon the expertise of academics in the Department and could even contribute to the world-leading research being carried out. There will also be opportunities for you to put your chemistry knowledge into practice in research laboratories and other professional environments outside the University, such as public engagement events and work in schools. All of our chemistry degrees have the same core units in the first year which gives you the flexibility to switch courses. The Master of Chemistry (MChem) provides you with the same core skills and knowledge of the bachelor’s but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques, including a major research project throughout the final year.
