Chemistry is a versatile and stimulating major. A chemistry major from Dordt College can take you to graduate school, a job in industry, a research position, or teaching. Dordt chemistry majors have enrolled at graduate schools in the U.S. and Canada and have received significant assistantships in a variety of graduate programs. Graduates have also obtained excellent positions with local and national companies as teachers, doctors, engineers, salespeople, pharmacists, executives, and more.
The great need for well-trained science teachers in North America's schools means that Dordt teacher education graduates in the sciences have little problem finding jobs.
