Chemistry

Overview:

Chemistry helps explain the physical world and its workings, and plays an important role in our lives. Chemists have contributed a great deal to technical advances of society and have made many important contributions to modern life.

Everything is made from one or more chemical elements that occur in nature. Chemists use different kinds of chemical processes to make the elements more useful, and they create products that make our lives healthier, easier, and more enjoyable.

Chemistry

Preparation (continued):

The variety of degrees in chemistry and related fields include: Associate in Applied Science (AAS), Associate of Science (A.S.); Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in chemistry; Master of Science (M.S.) degree and the Master of Arts (M.A.) degree; and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. Some receive additional training in post-doctoral positions.

Since the chemical industry has become globalized, you may want to include the study of a foreign language.

Chemistry

Day in the Life:

Private industry employs about two-thirds of all chemists. Most industrial chemists work in research and development (R&D), R&D management, sales, or marketing. Entry-level bachelor's degree chemists may work in research or plant labs analyzing and testing products. They may also work with senior researchers in R&D laboratories. As they gain experience, they work more independently and can advance to supervisory positions or change career tracks to work in chemical sales or other business functions.

Chemistry

Day in the Life (continued):

About 10% of all chemists are employed by the government. Much of this work is aimed at developing the scientific basis for government regulations. Chemists also perform testing work needed to enforce government regulations and monitor their effectiveness.

Others with a degree in Chemistry choose to work in academia, sharing their passion for chemistry with students at all grade levels.
