The Chemistry Program is intended for students planning on transferring to a four-year degree program with a major in chemistry or related fields. Individuals interested in chemistry can prepare themselves for careers in research, education, government, and industry. With further education and experience, students can pursue career pathways in chemistry, such as forensic chemistry, geochemistry, biochemistry, manufacturing, environmental science, patent law, water quality, textiles, and science writing. As students study to become chemists, they develop the ability to make critical observations, operate scientific equipment, organize data, and maintain accurate records. Requirements for the Chemistry Program are rigorous and lead to a rewarding career.
