    Dr Michael Janusa says

    Chemistry is the study of the composition, properties and behavior of matter. Chemistry is considered the “central science”, as it is the science of the molecular scale, and it is at the molecular level that major advancements are being made in areas such as medicine, nanotechnology, new materials, and the environment. Understanding chemistry is useful as it provides a basis for understanding the physical world and overlaps many of the other sciences.

    A graduate education from the US gives the international student an opportunity to gain valuable experience in research and teaching in their discipline. Many US universities offer graduate research and teaching assistantships that support students with income while they further their education.

    Studying chemistry abroad will give you the opportunity to see the world through exploring new employment prospects, broadening your knowledge in the discipline, and attending conferences and exhibitions.

    International students who choose to study chemistry in the USA will be prepared to further their education or obtain industry, government, or research positions.
