Chemistry Careers

Chemistry’s centrality in our world makes it an ideal major for science-related job seekers. While many of our students pursue post-secondary education in the medicine (medical, dental, pharmacy school, etc.), there are many other choices out there.

The American Chemical Society is an excellent resource for exploring potential career paths that build off of your chemistry degree. You can explore careers based on sector, the area of chemistry, and field of specialization.

After identifying careers of interest, the Occupational Outlook Handbook is a great way to determine the median pay, job availability, job outlook, and more. This resource also allows you to search by geographic area.
