It is not uncommon for students to avoid chemistry either from a concern about limiting career options, a bad experience in high-school chemistry, or the perception of being endlessly stuck in school. On the contrary, majoring in chemistry or biochemistry hones analytical and problem-solving skills, communication skills, and teaches experimental techniques that are broadly applicable throughout science and engineering. Employers in all fields seek out students majoring in the molecular sciences for their creativity in problem solving.
