Chemical Sciences

Discovery Matters

Chemistry has often been called “the central science” – the study of the basic building blocks that make up everything around us, providing the foundation for a broad range of other disciplines. At Bridgewater State University, there are endless opportunities to explore the diverse substances that make up our world: what they’re made of, what happens when they are combined or separated and how they can be manipulated to solve problems affecting humanity and our environment.
