In the Ozarks Chemistry program, you'll start out taking classes that teach you the fundamentals, such as how the various elements are categorized and what their properties are. Having mastered that, you'll then move on to more complex subjects, such as organic chemistry or quantitative analysis.

By the time you graduate with your Chemistry major, your studies at Ozarks will have you ready to go on to graduate school, or to begin your career in chemistry.
