Deciding on a college major can be challenging for many college students, especially if you are unsure what niche you should focus in. While there are many broad college degrees you can obtain, most college graduates find that if they major in a specific niche of study, they are more likely to find employment that pays a higher rate of salary and the same niche is often a passion which makes for more interesting employment (source). If you are a science or health major in college, you may want to consider majoring in a degree that offers a niche study in acid-base chemistry.
Acid-base chemistry is college major that focuses on the study of the human body from a biochemical standpoint. Because our bodies are comprised of a large acid-to-base interaction, majoring in this type of biochemical degree program will enable you to not only focus on chemistry but to also enter into the realms of medical research. In doing so, you are placing your career into a high demand, yet understaffed, field of focus.
The human body, and the treatment of conditions in medicine, can not be successful without the study of biochemical function of the body and the root of that biochemical understanding comes in the form of acid-to-base research. As a biochemistry major, you can find employment in medical research, research in drug or pharmaceutical companies, and even work in the area of medicine or animal studies. The options for careers are endless when majoring in any educational program that offers an acid-base chemistry education program.
Not all colleges will offer an acid-base chemistry major as a degree so this may be a curriculum for which you will need to minor or simply ramp up your science classes within this area of focus. In other words, if your major is in science or health, simply choosing any class that is offered is not recommended if this is the area of specialty you want to pursue. Instead, try to identify those classes that are involved or associated with acid-base chemistry and develop your own niche of study within the traditional degree program you are obtaining from your college.
In a more competitive world, establishing not only your choice of major at college is important, but also finding ways in which to make your area of study more niche-focused will also be important. When struggling with you focus, consider the acid-base chemistry as this is a biochemistry area of focus that will only increase and expand in demand as medical research and medical technology advances – ultimately leading to far more career options for you to consider.
