Student Opportunities

Choosing a career is an important decision.

  • Senior research projects give students insight into career possibilities.

  • The American Chemical Society provides students with advice on how to prepare for successful work in graduate school. It gives advice on how and when to apply for admission, and what to expect once enrolled in graduate school.
  • The ACS also provides an online version of the ACS Directory of Graduate Research which lists numbers and types of graduate degrees granted for each graduate department and lists biographical information about faculty in graduate departments, including their most recent publications. It is searchable and is a great way to find out which labs are doing the type of work you are interested in.
