Chemistry is the science that studies matter, its properties and composition, and the laws that govern the formation of matter from the basic elements. The breadth of the subject area is enormous and chemists can be found working on such diverse problems as the development of new plastics and fibers, drug preparation, pollution control, the isolation, and identification of plant and insect hormones, medical research, nuclear chemistry, and the analysis of geological materials.
Students should complete the Associate in Arts or the Associate of Science (Track 1) Degree requirements if they plan to transfer to a four year institution. Students should work closely with an advisor at the baccalaureate institution they plan to transfer to before analyzing their education plan.
