The chemistry major serves those students who wish to build an educational background for a variety of interesting careers. A chemistry graduate is ready for immediate employment either as a chemical technician or as a chemist in government, industry or academia. Chemistry offers excellent preparation for professional schools including medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, veterinary science or for graduate work in chemistry. Careers can be found in any of the traditional areas of chemistry as well as in forensic science, materials science, environmental science, food chemistry, paper chemistry, water chemistry, agricultural chemistry, petroleum chemistry, geochemistry, polymer chemistry, paint and coatings chemistry, and scientific writing and/or art. An advanced degree can also lead to doing fundamental research in academia, industry or government or professional work in management, law, sales, marketing, consulting and purchasing. A chemistry career is usually limited only by one’s own vision!
