Chemistry (Transfer)

Many careers are open to Chemistry majors. Lab technician positions in the chemical industry are available for students with an associate in science degree. Students continuing with a four-year Chemistry major program have career possibilities in research, government, patent law, business administration, sales and purchasing, chemical engineering, environmental work (pollution control and ecology) and quality control in the food industry. Students planning a career in medicine, dentistry or veterinary science often major in Chemistry with supporting Biology courses.
