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:

At the Associate's Level: At the Bachelor's Level: At the Master's/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  

Please see a counselor for major preparation and general education that will best meet your specific goals.

AA-T/AS-T = Associate of Arts/Science Degree for Transfer Earned by completing requirements in the academic major, a transfer general education pattern, and a total of 60 transferable units that would be the typical first two years of a 4-year degree; provides a clear transfer pathway to CSU.
AA/AS = Associate of Arts/Science Degree Earned by completing requirements in the academic major, a general education pattern, and a total of 60 degree-applicable units.
COA = Certificate of Achievement Formally recognizes a student’s competence in a program of study and prepares students for employment in a career/technical field. Also available for completion of a General Education Pattern for transfer. Will appear on the student’s academic transcript.
SAC = Skills Attainment Certificate Prepares students for employment with experience in specific career/technical fields. Do not appear on official transcripts.
