With a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, you could play a leading role in the fight against disease, criminal investigations, developing sustainable industrial processes, discovering new materials for use in nanotechnology and much more. You'll develop a broad range of professional, problem solving and personal skills which are widely sought by employers. Employment opportunities for Chemistry graduates are bright, especially if you combine this major with other disciplines. When you graduate, you could pursue a career in research, teaching, the arts, and business. You could even explore roles in law and accounting firms, NGOs, and government policy positions at a local, national or international level.
Recommended double majors include Environmental Science, Forensic Biology and Toxicology, Mathematics and Statistics, Mineral Science, Molecular Biology or Physics and Nanotechnology.
