Internships, Careers, and Graduate School

Beyond the classroom, there are many opportunities for learning through guest lectures and research projects with faculty. Participation in internship and directed study projects is encouraged for all students. We have graduates in exciting career-track jobs across the country, and around the world, and network our current, and graduating students with them frequently.

Internship Opportunities

The Department of Chemistry encourages its majors to take internships. An internship can serve as a valuable test for you in making well-informed choices about your future goals. Students have several opportunities to engage in compensated research, as Saint Anselm is currently receiving funding from the INBRE grant through which summer research fellowships are available.

In addition, the Father Michael Summer Research Grant is awarded for a summer research position in collaboration with a Chemistry faculty member.

Many students obtain industry internship placements, others participate in academic research programs at major research institutions.

Career Paths

A chemistry degree from Saint Anselm College can be the beginning to many career paths. Our students have successfully gone on to work in industry and government agencies, and teach at colleges and high schools, including Raytheon, Sunovion Pharmaceuticals, Northern Analytical Laboratories, Bedford (NH) High School, and Malden (MA) Catholic High School.

Graduate School

In recent years, Saint Anselm graduates have been accepted at some of the best graduate schools in the United States and have been awarded scholarships, teaching assistantships, and research positions. The Office of Academic Advisement is available to assist your pursuit of graduate studies.
