A degree in chemistry from Birmingham-Southern can help you succeed in any given number of career choices. Recent graduates have gone on to:

  • Biological & Biomedical Sciences Ph.D. program at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

  • Peace Corp in Malawi, Africa

  • M.D./Ph.D. program at the University of Minnesota

"For me, BSC fostered a foundation for critical thinking that few universities or colleges can provide. The chemistry faculty includes talented professors who have committed their lives to giving students engaging classroom instruction, independent research experiences, and opportunities for publication. I graduated fully prepared to teach secondary science in a rural African village as a United States Peace Corps volunteer, and later to gain entrance into a top graduate program in the biomedical sciences."
