At Saint Louis University, you can get either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry. Career choices for graduates include Education, Chemical research and development, Pharmaceutical research and drug development, Environmental research, Materials science research, Management and administration in the chemical industry and Chemical and pharmaceutical sales. Other graduates go to law school and work in patent law or environmental law. The public health sector also provides career opportunities.
Both the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science tracks offered at SLU's Chemistry Department include coursework in general chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. If a student is in SLU’s pre-professional health studies program, pre-law program or they are interested in a double major, the chemistry Bachelor of Arts might be perfect.
Chemists are architects. Chemists deal with the make-up of non-living things, from fabrics to oil and petrol to the stratosphere, basically, everything that we can see and touch. A chemist’s “building blocks” are molecules and particles.
Suffolk University’s chemistry major program is a concentrated, lab-based syllabus, this is combined with unequalled opportunities for independent research in one of the world’s most technically advanced cities. Professors offer important advice if majors apply for National Science Foundation Fellowships. These fellowships allow majors to take part in funded research projects during the summer. Suffolk chemistry graduates continue on to work in hospitals and labs around the world, others take up graduate degrees in medicine and forensics.
