B.Sc. (Honours) in Chemistry at MVN University comprises 24 papers across six semesters. New areas such as computer applications in chemistry, method of chemical analysis and environmental chemistry make the new structure more diverse. ‘‘Chemists not only describe and explain our world as it is, but also change and extend this world through production of new chemical substances, i.e. matter. It connects and merges into most other sciences such as physics, mathematics, geology, environmental science, biology, nano-technology and materials science, among others”.


For B.Sc. Honours, a candidate should have passed 10 +2 or equivalent exam with 55 to 60% with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics /Biology as compulsory subjects.


There is a variety of rewarding careers to choose from. However, employment options depend on the extent of education. ‘‘Students can go for Masters in chemistry and then PhD after qualifying NET. One may specialize in any branch — Physical, Inorganic, Organic, Analytical or Biochemistry. A bachelor’s degree is sufficient for entry-level positions in industrial and government labs but limits the career advancement up the ‘corporate ladder. One can find suitable options in areas like oil, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, public health and environmental protection sectors, etc.’’
