Chemistry at St. Mary’s

Chemistry is all around us, and our quality of life is intimately linked to the development of new materials and to a better understanding of all biological processes.

A degree in Chemistry will give you unique insight into areas that are central to biology, geology, materials science, medicine, environmental science and many branches of engineering.

Chemistry will be an integral part of solving global challenges such as human health, energy and the environment.

Many graduates continue their education after completing their first degree, including medical school or graduate school.

The professors are incredibly encouraging in making sure you know of the opportunities that will make you a unique applicant for wherever you are applying. They often send emails for internship and job applications and work with you to find a good fit! All you have to do is ask.
