The Department of Chemistry takes your future career seriously.

Many of our students want to become chemists, which means graduate school and advanced degrees. Many others want to be doctors, optometrists, or pharmacists, or go into other health-related professions. If this is what you want to do, we'll help you get there.

But you don't have go to graduate school. You could also become a teacher, a forensic scientist, technical writer, scientific journalist or illustrator, scientific illustration, or a research assistant. You can even apply it to intellectual property/patent law. The possibilities are endless.

Start exploring those possibilities here at UAB. To talk about professional opportunities in chemistry, make an appointment with the chemistry academic advisor.



The chemistry advisor will be happy to give you answers. You can reach out to Jamie R. Grimes, Chemistry Advisor, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
