The Chemistry Department offers a program leading to an Associate of Science degree. Required courses and laboratory instruction in this program provides the student the first two years of chemistry and related courses required for admission to baccalaureate major programs. Program also provides a solid foundation in chemistry necessary for admission to professional programs and for employment in chemistry-related areas.

Chemistry is also a discipline essential to training for many pre-professional fields as well as health sciences. All classes are transferable to other schools in the state system of higher education and most other universities and colleges. Chemistry classes are offered at four levels:

  1. General one-semester survey class; fulfills General Education requirements for non-technical student
  2. A two-semester health science series of inorganic, organic and biochemistry
  3. A two-semester series of pre-engineering/pre-professional general inorganic chemistry
  4. A two-semester series of organic chemistry. A preparatory class (CHEM 1100) is available to students with no previous courses in chemistry.
