Bachelor of Science in Chemistry
A degree in chemistry can provide a strong foundation for a wide variety of exciting careers. Chemists employed by manufacturing companies analyze products as part of the process of quality control. In the medical field they work with doctors, undertaking toxicological studies that assist in treatment. Many are heavily involved in the synthesis of new materials. Some chemists never even step foot in a laboratory; as practitioners of computational chemistry they use modeling software to analyze potential products prior to production. In drug companies especially, such chemists winnow a large number of possible molecules and synthetic pathways down to just a few and predict the properties of a new drug without its ever being manufactured in the laboratory.
Individuals with a solid chemistry background are highly valued in industry - and not just by chemical companies. Chemists who start "at the bench" often move into other areas, such as marketing, sales, and management. While chemistry is one of the preferred majors for admission to medical or dental school, it is also excellent preparation for those interested in studying law. Patent law, environmental law, and occupational health and safety law all require the background that only a technical degree like chemistry can provide.
Graduates with a degree in Chemistry have many career options:
