Chemistry Management

If science is your passion, the chemistry management joint major will help you translate that interest into a business career.

Students working in a lab

Who says you can't mix business with pleasure?

You'll be prepared for a variety of paths at the interface of the two disciplines, such as sales and marketing for chemical and pharmaceutical companies, administrative roles in science-based industries or institutions, and scientific information liaisons in fields like public relations, political advising, and lobbying.

You'll work with a faculty advisor to tailor your program to your interests and career goals. The Department of Chemistry offers many closely-related programs — such as biochemistrychemistry and environmental science — and Simmons students have many opportunities to further customize with dual majors and complementary minors.

Our students put theory into practice through on-site research, off-site research, and internships.

On-site research: You'll work with faculty members whose research piques your interest.

Off-site research: Students also explore clinical, applied, or basic research at one of the many laboratories in the Simmons neighborhood.

Internships: Supervised learning experiences provide opportunities for career exploration within a context of critical thinking. You'll hone your skills, build your resume, and develop mentoring relationships that will help you in your career.

So you know that Simmons is a great place to be, you've learned about our programs, maybe even come for a visit...now you're ready to apply! Let's get started.
