After Saint Anselm, What's Next?

Students work with their faculty and representatives from Career Services to find career opportunities. Our students receive a B.A. degree rather than a B.S. degree to reflect the broadness of their liberal arts education.  The department has been certified by the American Chemical Society since 1969, which highlights the additional commitment to laboratory skills, modern instrumentation, and hands on experiences necessary for success in chemistry.

Of students who graduated between 2009 and 2018, 93% are employed or engaged in service, 45% have attended graduate school. Of those that are currently in jobs, 85% are employed in their field. A 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. Additionally, 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.
