Chemistry Concentration, Arts and Sciences, A.S.


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The chemistry concentration is for students planning to transfer to a four-year degree program with a major in chemistry or related fields. The program provides all the basic science, mathematics, and general education courses that are required during the first two years of most four-year chemistry programs. Chemistry is also important in other disciplines such as communications and computers, biotechnology, environmental science, energy resources, molecular biology, medicine, and forensics. Students should work with an academic transfer advisor when selecting courses and be aware that the program requirements are rigorous.
