What do St. Andrews Graduates do with a Chemistry Minor?
Perhaps the true proof that a St. Andrews chemistry minor is outstanding is that graduates are successful. St. Andrews graduates have embarked on diverse careers in chemistry, pharmacy, biochemistry and environmental science. Many St. Andrews graduates move on to graduate school (including Duke University, University of Tennessee, Northwestern, Colorado State, Wake Forest, University of North Carolina and Virginia Tech, to name a few) and medical and nursing schools.
"I benefited greatly from the small class size and the individual attention I received at St. Andrews. I did not appreciate this until I went to graduate school at Princeton. Many of my peers had gone to large, famous universities as undergraduates. Their large classes meant they had learned everything 'by rote'. They had not been challenged to think, understand, and develop the concepts behind what they had learned." Aubrey Helms, '81 Ph.D., Vice President of Technology, ASML, Thermal Division
St. Andrews exemplary Chemistry graduates have worked at companies, such as Glaxo-Wellcome pharmaceuticals, The DuPont Chemical Company, Bausch and Lomb (Optical Division of Johnson & Johnson) and Esteé Lauder Cosmetics. In addition, we have graduates in faculty and research positions at Georgia Tech University (analytical chemistry) and Louisiana State University (biochemistry). In 2013, our Chemistry Major was focused into the form of a minor.
