Chemistry is sometimes called the “Central Science” since it is connected to so many other sciences.  With a chemistry degree, many career options are available to you.

Chemists with B.Sc. degrees can be bench chemists in industry, government or academia;  salespeople with chemical or equipment suppliers; or science writers for newspapers, magazines, blogs, or self-employed. Additionally, other options after your chemistry degree include post-graduate study for your M.Sc. or Ph.D.; volunteer work with various agencies; a study in professional schools such as business, law, medicine, pharmacy, or dentistry; or consulting work.
