Whether you’re interested in waste disposal, food science, new medicines, or new sources of energy, getting an international perspective enhances your understanding of the properties of matter that make up all living things. Taking your chemistry studies abroad provides the opportunity to learn comparative research methods.
Things you can do abroad as a chemistry or biochemistry major:
- Understand the complex chemical reactions that affect the body when foods, drugs, and allergens are introduced
- Work with international chemists and graduate students finding ways to safely use grey water for irrigating food crops
- Learn to use tools that explore the chemistry of complex biological systems
- Work in a lab to develop drug test prototypes
