The Chemistry Transfer degree gives students a solid foundation in the basics of science with an emphasis on chemistry. Students completing the degree will be well prepared to transfer to a four-year program in chemistry at a college or university.
- Estimated Length of Program: 2 years
- Credential Awarded: Associate in Science in Engineering and Science Transfer
Chemistry is the science of matter at the atomic and molecular scale, dealing primarily with collection of atoms, such as molecules, crystals and metals. Chemistry deals with the composition and statistical properties of such structures, as well as their transformation and interaction to become materials encountered in everyday life.
Chemistry is used in a variety of professions and industries, such as, chemical engineering, plastics, pharmaceutical research and development, pharmacist, environmental science (such as, water treatment, air quality control), and forensics, among others.
Students interested in pursuing higher education in the field of chemistry should follow the prescribed curriculum shown below. This curriculum meets the requirements for the MassTransfer A2B Pathway in Chemistry.
Upon the successful completion of requirements for this program, the degree of Associate in Science in Engineering and Science Transfer will be awarded.
