Students studying chemistry may elect to pursue the A.A. or A.S. degrees. Graduates may work toward careers in education, industry, government, environmental science, and the health sciences-medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, or veterinary medicine.
The Department operates an experimental complex consisting of six teaching laboratories and support facilities, including equipment required for instrumental analysis and medical laboratory analysis. Chemistry students who enter with less than three years of high school mathematics should select mathematics by advisement. Students may not enroll in any chemistry courses while taking remedial mathematics courses. Curriculum and program selections should be made in consultation with a departmental advisor. Consumer Chemistry, CHE 108, is for non-science students.
All chemistry courses may be applied toward the College's laboratory science degree requirements. Facilities on campus include the Chemistry Department Learning Center with tutorial support located in C-115.
