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 chemistry and forensic science majors to participate in internships. An internship can serve as a valuable test for you in making well-informed choices about your future goals. Students have recently done internships at Great North Aleworks, New Hampshire State Police, Massachusetts State Crime Lab, andvarious local police and fire departments in NH and MA. Please contact Professor Mary Kate Donais for more information about chemistry internship opportunities.
