You might find yourself surprised with all the things you can do with a chemistry degree. Besides teaching and working in labs, you can become a writer or editor or even study law.

About 50 percent of chemists chose to work in research, but some choose careers such as:

  • anesthesiologist
  • criminologist
  • dentist
  • dermatologist
  • food and drug inspector
  • sanitarian
  • urologist 

After years of working or maybe right out of college, you may find that you have a desire to teach. Chemistry teachers are needed in not only high schools and colleges but middle schools as well.

With a degree in chemistry, you can truly go far doing something you love.
