Chemistry

Program Description: The Associate of Science degree in Chemistry is intended to match, within the constraints of the Core Curriculum, the course of study for the first two years of a typical science program at a four-year college or university. It also provides the flexibility for students desiring only an associate degree to specialize the program to individual interests.
