BABA General Studies Specialization: Chemistry

The Chemistry area of specialization includes a broad range of courses in Chemistry, often called the “central science” because of the pivotal role it plays in all of the biological and physical sciences, as well as engineering, agriculture, medicine, and other health-related disciplines. It is an ideal specialization for Business majors wanting to improve their analytical reasoning skills to prepare for managerial positions in chemical, agricultural, or pharmaceutical companies, governmental agencies, or the health care industry.
