Chemistry is the science that stands at the junction between physical and biological sciences. An associate degree concentrating in chemistry provides a solid foundation for students to use when transferring to a four-year institution. This foundation will allow a student to pursue a bachelor’s degree in chemistry or professional training in the fields of dentistry, medicine, or pharmacy. A bachelor’s degree in chemistry qualifies the student to obtain employment in industry as a chemist or go on for a graduate degree. It is strongly encouraged students complete eight hours of calculus and physics.
