Chemistry provides much of the common vocabulary, facts, and tools necessary for success in any area of science. Ultimately, most of the phenomena in the biological, geological, physical, environmental, and medical sciences can be expressed in terms of the chemical and physical behavior of atoms and molecules. Because of chemistry's key role, one or two years of chemistry are essential for students planning careers in the sciences.
