Success After Wooster

Over the past decade, approximately 50 percent of Wooster chemistry graduates entered Ph.D. programs in areas including chemistry, environmental science, biochemistry and epidemiology. Another 18 percent went on to health professional schools. Chemistry majors have been employed in chemistry-related positions at places like Merck Research Laboratories, Eli Lilly & Co., Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Agilent, and Lubrizol, to name a few. Wooster graduates also pursue careers in K-12 and higher education. Included in the listed below (indicated by an asterisk) are those students who majored in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
