Undergraduate preparation in chemistry opens the door to many exciting career possibilities.
Juniata students with POEs in chemistry have gone on to complete graduate or professional degrees in medicine and medical research, law, forensic science, material sciences such as polymers and metallurgy, toxicology, geochemistry, molecular biology, and, of course, various areas of chemistry.
Others have used their chemistry degree to start careers directly upon graduation in government or industrial laboratories of both large and small corporations, working in areas such as environmental analyses, drugs, paper, and research. Some of our graduates with POEs in chemistry rise through the corporate structure to become top-level administrators; others prefer to retain close contact with laboratory research. In contrast to joining a corporation, some of our graduates are more entrepreneurial, and undertake enterprises such as family medical practice, or start their own companies.
