Program Goals

  • To prepare graduates for entry-level positions in science related fields that require an associate in science degree such as: laboratory technicians or research assistants in pharmaceutical, biomedical, or academic research laboratories.
  • To provide students with a foundation in general education.
  • To provide a concentration of course work appropriate for chemistry and basic chemistry instrumentation.
  • To ensure transferability of course work to a baccalaureate program in chemistry or science education.
  • To prepare graduates to enter pre-professional programs in careers such as chemical engineer, laboratory technician, physician’s assistant, physician and physical therapist

Program Student Learning Outcomes

At the end of the program, the graduate will be able to:

  1. Use the scientific method to design and perform experiments in the chemistry laboratory.
  2. Explain the fundamental concepts of chemistry.
  3. Analyze data using mathematical and chemical principles and present in multiple formats
