About the Chemistry Degree
A bachelor’s degree in chemistry opens many avenues and provides many career options.
Nationwide, about 60 percent of graduates enter the workforce in industries such as
chemical, food and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Others enter graduate school to get
a Ph.D. in chemistry or work in higher education and scientific research and development.
Still, others enter a medical profession such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary
medicine and chiropractic. Chemistry majors can also find jobs teaching high school
chemistry. Chemistry majors are respected for their ability to analyze and solve problems.
This ability makes chemistry majors desirable in sales and management positions, as
Both graduate schools and industries like to see undergraduate experience in research. TROY’s chemistry faculty members are active in research in which students can often participate. Summer research opportunities are also available at national laboratories and graduate schools around the country. This is part of the nation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program.
