Chemistry and biochemistry are considered by many to be the liberal arts degrees of the technical world, and these fields are an integral part of modern research in medicine, the environment, new materials, and energy technology.  Beyond careers in the disciplines themselves, those who major in chemistry or biochemistry as undergraduates can pursue advanced degrees in engineering, medicine, business, education, and even law, where a technical background is a boon in the areas of patent and environmental law.
