An AS-T in Chemistry prepares students to study many molecular sciences including molecular biology/biochemistry, materials science, earth and atmospheric sciences as well as chemical fields such as chemical engineering or chemistry. The courses are aligned with the American Chemical Society's approved curriculum and allow easy transfer to CSU campuses.

Required and elective courses include:

  • Two, year-long sequences in chemistry, which build foundational knowledge in:
    • General Chemistry
    • Organic Chemistry
  • Foundational courses that increase your quantitative & experimental ability:
    • Calculus I & II
    • Introductory Physics
  • Electives that expand your science knowledge in your area of interest,such as:
    • Anthropology
    • Biology
    • Engineering
    • Geology/Earth Science

Chemistry Majors go into a variety of careers, some examples are:

Associates Level Bachelors Level Masters/Doctorate Level
Technician in government or industrial labs Regulatory Scientist Research & development in industrial, governmental & academic labs
Field Tech for regulatory labs Production or process scientist in industry or government College Professor
Sales & support for scientific equipment Forensic Science Technician Patent law
  Secondary School Teacher Consultant/Scientific Advisor
  Analytical Lab Technician  

Students successfully completing the Chemistry Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) Degree have a solid foundation for pursuing further education in Chemistry or a related field. This AS-T degree is specifically designed to streamline transfer to CSU, see for details. UC transfer is streamlined by following a UC Transfer Pathway. Please see a counselor for your best major preparation and general education pattern for your specific goals.
