A degree in chemistry can open doors to career paths in law, medicine and management as well as traditional careers in chemistry.

Are you thinking about a career in medicine or law? You might want to consider a bachelor of science degree in chemistry. A B.S. in chemistry can take you far beyond the test tubes and beakers of traditional labs (although our programs will make you highly qualified in that setting, too). A chemistry degree is vital for anyone who wants to practice patent law, for instance, or conduct research in state-of-the-art medical labs. You will train to work at the forefront of scientific and medical research in industry, government and academia. You will join our alumni who are employed as chemists across a range of fields — from government labs testing food, air and water quality to private industries seeking new sources of energy. Your degree can also lead to positions in areas such as environmental law or managerial positions in fields relying on science and technology. Visit the advisement section and the American Chemical Society College-to-Career site to discover the range of opportunities.
