What is the Chemistry program?
Chemistry is in the forefront of all human activities ranging from cooking to nursing to rocket science. A basic understanding of chemistry is required for all health and biosciences fields as well as science-related professions in STEM fields and technical careers in industry. Our program not only addresses these areas, but also prepares those students wishing to pursue careers in academia.
What will I learn?
The composition, structure, and properties of matter and the changes it undergoes. Students can experience direct contact with substances that compose our world—elements, compounds, and mixtures—examining and analyzing them both manually and instrumentally. Most of our courses are embedded with hands-on labs which reinforce learning through application.
What can I do with this course of study?
Students may choose to pursue careers as nurses, doctors, dentists, pharmacists, veterinarians, photographers, firefighters, chemists, biologists, geologists, engineers and physicists.
What's special about this program?
Core classes transfer to most four-year universities. The ChemSpot is a tutoring and learning center staffed by faculty and student tutors providing on-demand help with math and chemistry topics.
