A chemistry major provides exceptional preparation for medical school and health-related careers.

Internships and summer research programs for chemistry students are typically competitively paid positions, often including travel and housing allowances.

Chemistry majors enjoy nearly 100% employment after graduation. Approximately two-thirds of Aquinas chemistry graduates attend graduate school after leaving Aquinas. The remainder typically find jobs in the chemical industry or related fields within one year of graduation.

The Chemistry capstone course is a two-semester sequence in which students design and implement an independent research project of their choice under the supervision of a professor. Scientific writing, experimental design, and data analysis are emphasized.
