Career Opportunities

Our chemistry program teaches undergraduate students how to conduct independent research, work as part of a team, and collaborate in a research environment. As a result, our students are prepared to enter the job market or pursue an advanced degree. Our graduates are admitted to the nation’s leading graduate and medical schools or land jobs in business, development, education, law, medicine and research.
