Chemistry majors will have the opportunity to gain experience in the techniques of atomic absorption, infrared, ultraviolet, and visible spectrophotometries, as well as polarography, nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, differential scanning calorimetry, magnetic susceptibility, and various types of chromatography including gas, high-pressure liquid, column, and thin layer. Graduates with extensive training in chemistry can qualify for a number of academic, industrial or governmental positions which involve teaching, basic research, or administrative duties. Many industrial jobs for chemists involve developing new and more useful products and analyzing materials for quality control, environmental and consumer protection, and medical diagnosis.

A sound undergraduate chemistry background qualifies students for advanced work in graduate or professional schools. Aside from graduate studies in various fields of chemistry, other possibilities include specialization in medicine or related professions, food technology, agriculture, earth and environmental sciences, business and law. Also, students with training in chemistry can become certified to teach chemistry in high schools and junior college.
