Chemistry

Program Purpose: Students participating in the General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry program will use the process of scientific inquiry to qualitatively and quantitatively solve chemistry problems by gathering evidential information, analyzing data, forming appropriate conclusions, and communicating these results through written and oral expressions. The Chemistry Department offers the opportunity for students to excel by providing the latest information and technology in both the lecture and laboratory settings.

Program Description: A comprehensive set of undergraduate courses fulfill the general education and transfer requirements of students through onsite as well as hybrid (online/onsite) offerings. Students may obtain an AA or AS in chemistry; both major requirements optimize preparation for advanced degrees in chemistry at four-year institutions. A background in chemistry is essential for many high-paying, challenging careers. Opportunities await the chemist in such fields as medicine and pharmaceuticals, metals and polymers, petroleum, electrochemistry, nanotechnology, forensics, aerospace, paper, food technology, business, and education.
