General aims and objectives of the course are the followings:
- To develop in our graduates the qualities needed to become the next generation of high quality chemists operating in chemical research, chemical industry and in the teaching of chemistry
- To make our students realize that chemistry is a fundamental discipline, central to the development of a modern and concerned society
- To provide intellectual stimuli and practical skills for highly determined graduates willing to play leading roles and undertake brilliant careers in the society
In particular, graduates in Chemistry are expected to gain the following skills:
- The basic knowledge in mathematic and physics to deal with chemical principles and concepts on a scientific basis.
- The ability to understand and rationalize a wide range of chemical phenomena both at the theoretical and at the practical level.
- The ability to understand the relationships between chemistry and other scientific disciplines.
- The creativity to develop new ideas, new solutions to chemistry-related problems, and foresee innovative fields of application for chemistry.
- The open-mind necessary to collaborate with scientists of culturally-related disciplines
The students with the degree in Chemistry would be entitled to work in public and private-owned laboratories as highly qualified technicians. They could operate as assistants of more specialized personnel in the synthesis and characterization of new products and/or new materials, collaborate in the development of novel technologies, elaborate reports, handle and present chemical information. They could find positions in chemical industry, especially in pharmaceutical and fine chemicals companies, but also in the agrochemical, cosmetic and food chemistry.
They can also apply for Master programmes, preferentially in Chemical Sciences. On average, more than 70% of our students do so, after receiving the degree in Chemistry.

Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.

Additional learning obligations (OFA)

OFA: Disciplines

Students who do not pass the entrance examination on maths, are assigned additional learning obligations (OFA, Obblighi formativi aggiuntivi) that they must fulfil in accordance with the provisions of the Programme Structure.

OFA: English language

Students must have level B1 proficiency in English. Proficiency may be certified at the time of matriculation by submitting a certificate of level B1 language proficiency or better, or by sitting the SLAM (University Language Centre) Placement test during the first year of studies only, between September and December.

Students who do not pass the test must follow the SLAM language courses and obtain appropriate certification within the year the plan of study calls for a language exam.

Students enrolled in Chemistry course are encouraged to apply to the Erasmus Plus actions, where various positions are available in 20 European universities. They can earn their credits by following courses and/or by performing part of their experimental thesis abroad. Before leaving, students must submit a Learning Agreement to be approved by the Teaching Board: this approval is mandatory for the acquisitions of the credits.

Mandatory for laboratory courses; strongly recommended for other teaching courses.

Students are advised to choose from the 6 CFU teachings of the LM in Chemical Science and Industrial Chemistry.
- The exams of Mathematical Institutions and "General and Inorganic Chemistry/Laboratory of General and Inorganic Chemistry". must be taken before the 2nd and 3rd year exams.
- The "General Physics" exams and "Complements to Mathematics and Numerical Calculus"... must be taken before the 3rd year exams.
- The exams of "Organic Chemistry I" must be supported before those of "Organic Chemistry Laboratory", of "Biological Chemistry". and "Insights in Organic Chemistry."
- The exams of "Organic Chemistry II" must be supported before the one in "Deepening Organic Chemistry".
- The exams indicated as Course I must be taken before the corresponding exams indicated as Course II, which in turn must be taken before the corresponding exams indicated as Course III.

It is advisable, however, to take the exams of each semester before taking those of the following semesters.
