The 3 years program finished with Bachelor degree includes all subjects of modern chemistry. Well prepared courses allow to gain a good fundamental knowledge of chemistry, practice in synthesis and application of physicochemical methods for structural and analytical studies. Well equipped laboratories allow students to acquire skills in different ares of chemistry by the individual training.

Program includes inorganic, organic, analytical, physical and theoretical chemistry courses, containing lectures, seminars and laboratory training in small groups. The curriculum includes not only chemistry but also subjects of related sciences, such as physical and physico-chemical instrumental methods.

An important advantage of studying at the Faculty of Chemistry Wrocław University is free access for students to modern instruments (NMR, EPR, X-ray, MS, TEM, SEM) located in 15 Faculty,s laboratories. Moreover, direct every-day contact with professors guarantees high level and efficient studies . Apart from core subjects students can additionally choose facultative courses according to their interest.

Having completed our studies graduates will be able to work in laboratories on modern equipment, and in companies that use modern technologies, as well as research institutions and diagnostic laboratories. Graduates can also work in various industries, in particular in the area of new environmentally friendly technologies and at universities.

Chemistry is the scientific discipline involved with compounds composed of atoms, i.e. elements, and molecules, i.e. combinations of atoms: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other compounds. Chemistry addresses topics such as how atoms and molecules interact via chemical bonds to form new chemical compounds. There are four types of chemical bonds: covalent bonds, in which compounds share one or more electron(s); ionic bonds, in which a compound donates one or more electrons to another compound to produce ions (cations and anions); hydrogen bonds; and Van der Waals force bonds.
I was an atheist, finding no reason to postulate the existence of any truths outside of mathematics, physics and chemistry. But then I went to medical school, and encountered life and death issues at the bedsides of my patients. Challenged by one of those patients, who asked "What do you believe, doctor?", I began searching for answers.

I recognize nothing that is not material. In physics, chemistry and biology I see only mechanics. The Universe is nothing but an infinite and complex mechanism. Its complexity is so great that it borders on randomness, giving the illusion of free will.
Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky (1931) Monism of the Universe
You don't need something more to get something more. That's what emergence means. Life can emerge from physics and chemistry plus a lot of accidents. The human mind can arise from neurobiology and a lot of accidents, the way the chemical bond arises from physics and certain accidents. Doesn't diminish the importance of these subjects to know they follow from more fundamental things plus accidents.
