Overview

The students benefit from an education within the Chemistry Department at Alma College by developing a fundamental understanding of chemistry, with the emphasis on new structural, analytical, synthetic and theoretical techniques applicable in both academic and industrial settings.

Independent research is an important component of the chemistry program at Alma College. Each professor has their own research laboratory located adjacent to their offices. 

These labs contain ample hoods for sample preparation and reactions. Independent research takes place on a close individual basis between the student and professor and allows access to state of the art equipment.  Students can begin an independent research project as early as their freshman year.

Career

  • Medicine: Because of the underlying molecular basis of disease, chemistry and biochemistry provide excellent preparation for medicine; these majors have a high rate of acceptance to medical schools.
  • Law: Many chemists who go on to law school do so because they have a particular interest in patent law, but other areas of law are certainly possible, too.
  • Engineering: Many students prefer to get a strong undergraduate education at a small liberal arts school, then move to larger schools to pursue a bachelor’s or higher degree in engineering.
  • Management / Business: A chemistry or engineering degree, followed by an MBA, provides excellent training for management-level positions in a wide array of industries. 
  • Education: College-level chemistry teaching usually requires a Ph.D. in chemistry; high school-level teaching requires a bachelor’s degree with a broader array of science and education courses.
  • Technical Writing: Technical writers are often needed by industries and law firms, partly to deal with patents. There are also smaller numbers of positions in the news media.
  • Chemistry Research, Development and Industry: Far from working alone in a windowless lab somewhere, most chemists work in interdisciplinary teams with many other people.
