Chemistry
General Information

This associate of science degree with specialization in chemistry is designed to provide the first two years of study for students who intend to continue their education in chemistry or other natural sciences. This degree (with careful selection of electives) will also be useful for students in the preprofessional study of medicine and related fields, as well as students who seek careers as laboratory technicians after completing an Associates Degree. Students transferring to another college should obtain information early from that college concerning specific degree requirements.

Students take chemistry courses that emphasize significant laboratory work, instrumentation, traditional wet chemical methods and microscale techniques.
