The Associate of Science degree with a field of study in Chemistry offers students the opportunity to take a core curriculum of general education with an emphasis in Chemistry. Chemistry students have a wide choice of careers in many different scientific and technical fields. The student should bear in mind that many of the career areas will require training beyond the Associate of Science degree and in some cases a post-graduate degree:

Career fields available to Chemistry students:

  • Biochemistry
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Education, secondary and post-secondary
  • Environmental Science
  • Forensic Science
  • Medical Technology
  • Mineral Processing
  • Molecular Biology
  • Oil Refining
  • Petroleum Engineering
  • Pharmacy
  • Plastics Manufacturing
  • Water Treatment

This listing closely parallels the first two years of education that one would receive at most universities. Upon completion of this sequence, many students transfer to obtain a degree in one of the various chemistry fields. However, students intending to transfer should be aware of the transfer institution’s requirements.
