I’m interested in forensics/environmental science/toxicology/biotechnology. Does the chemistry department offer classes or degrees in these areas?

No, the chemistry department does not offer specific training in these fields. A degree in chemistry will provide excellent training for students interested in exploring careers in these and many other fields related to chemistry, however. Fields such as forensic science rely heavily on basic chemical concepts that are learned in the course of the chemistry curriculum. Students with chemistry degrees are well qualified to take jobs in these fields, or may pursue advanced study in forensics, environmental science, or other areas upon completing their degree.
