Chemistry studentsUniversity of the Sciences chemistry program was named in the top five programs in Pennsylvania, according to a new list from Zippia.

The career website, which aims to help individuals discover new career paths and match candidates with positions, examined 14 institutions of higher education in the state to determine those that offer the best career opportunities for students majoring in Chemistry.

 USciences was fifth on the list alongside University of Pennsylvania, Lehigh University, Villanova University, and Carnegie Mellon University.

 The company leveraged data from the National Center for Education Statistics and College Scorecard data from the U.S. Department of Education in the ranking. Zippia created their Chemistry Quality Index based on median earnings, the number of students in each graduating class that major in chemistry, as well as admissions rate, graduation rate, average cost of attendance, and the median amount of debt.

We always knew we had good #chemistry. The @ZippiaInc formula ranks our Chem program top 5 in #PA.
