Reasons to Study Chemistry

Aside from the huge range of career opportunities that studying chemistry opens up, you learn how to be objective, analytical, methodical, and in turn solve your own questions that you have about the world around you.

Our Vision for Chemistry

Students at SJB study Chemistry as it helps our understanding of the world around us. Everything we know about the universe, from how trees reproduce to what an atom is made up of, is the result of scientific research and experiment. Human progress throughout history has largely rested on advances in science. From our knowledge of gravity to cutting-edge medicines, students of Science have shaped our modern world. All of these advances can trace their origin back to individuals learning about science as students. That’s why it is in all our interests to promote Science as a subject at SJB; it ensures the next wave of progress in all of the fields that affect our daily lives.
