B.Sc. Chemistry or Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is an undergraduate Chemistry course. Chemistry deals with the science of matter and the changes it undergoes. The science of matter is also addressed by physics, but while physics takes a more general and fundamental approach, chemistry is more specialized, being concerned with the composition, behaviour, structure, and properties of matter, as well as the changes it undergoes during chemical reactions. B.Sc. (Chemistry) is a physical science course which studies various substances, atoms, molecules, crystals and other aggregates of matter whether in isolation or combination, and which incorporates the concepts of energy and entropy in relation to the spontaneity of chemical processes. B.Sc. in Chemistry is of three years duration course having six semesters.
B.Sc. Chemistry is offered to undergraduate students with an aptitude for Chemistry. This course is apt for students who have an interest in exploring the mechanism of chemical processes and the fundamental nature of chemicals. This course is also ideal for students who seek to work as chemists or wish to join chemical industry in near future. Since the course also focuses on the fundamentals of atomic chemistry, it is also a good for those seeking a future in this field.
