Chemistry – Careers


According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average 2012 annual wage of entry-level chemists with bachelor’s degrees working in manufacturing was $73,060. The job outlook through 2022 was projected to be slower than average. Earning a graduate or professional degree in science or medicine boosts the wages and outlook significantly. The average 2012 wages of a dentist are $149,310 and those of a medical doctor are $187,200 with a projected 16 percent increase in jobs by 2022, higher than the average of all occupations.
