The associate degree program in chemistry prepares students to begin upper-division
work leading to a baccalaureate degree in chemistry or chemical engineering. It also
provides some of the support courses required for the baccalaureate degree.
The graduate of the AA program in chemistry will:
- Solve quantitative chemistry problems and demonstrate reasoning clearly and completely.
Integrate multiple ideas in the problem solving process.
- Apply problem-solving skills related to the nature of matter, solutions, phase changes,
chemical reactions, stoichiometry, energy transformations, atomic and molecular structure, quantum
theory, chemical bonding, intermolecular forces, periodic properties, thermodynamics,
kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry.
- Design, construct and interpret graphs accurately.
- Perform laboratory techniques correctly using appropriate safety procedures.

I also love the opportunity we are given to test our new skills in real life scenarios.
