Hall of Fame

Our department takes a active interest in the professional development of our students and provides extensive support for a variety of career paths. Some of our students continue in careers in academia after graduating, pursuing careers as professors or researchers at universities. Other students pursue careers in industry, government, law, or medicine. Graduate students in our program benefit from special career-preparedness workshops offered by the EDGE program through the School of Graduate Studies.

Career Paths of Chemistry Graduates

  • Medicine. Many students complete a graduate degree in chemistry and then go on to a career in medicine. An M.Sc. or Ph.D. in chemistry is a great way to set yourself apart from other medical school applicants. Memorial has an excellent medical school, with a majority of seats allocated to residents of Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • Pharmacy. Chemistry is integral to pharmacy and pharmaceutical science. Graduate studies in chemistry provide excellent preparation for a degree in pharmacy. The School of Pharmacy at Memorial has a large and robust program. 75% of seats in the program are reserved for residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. Tuition at the school of pharmacy is much lower than in comparable programs in Canada.
