Chemistry (207)
Associate in Science Degree

The Associate Degree is designed for students intending to transfer to a senior-level institution to complete a Bachelor’s Degree. This flexible program prepares the student for a variety of fields such as Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, Medical-related careers, and Laboratory Technology. See Nanofabrication Technology Specialization  for a fifth semester.

NOTE: Courses listed in the first/third semester will be scheduled for the fall; second/fourth semester courses will be scheduled for the spring. The student is encouraged to use the curriculum planner to keep track of courses taken and those still needed. In some cases, one or more courses may be taken in a different order than indicated on the planner. However, individual course prerequisites must be observed.
