The First Step to a Career In Science
As a chemistry student, you will learn how to use the measuring and analysis equipment in a modern chemistry lab while competently performing routine laboratory tasks. As you progress in the course, you will conduct experiments and solve problems based in general inorganic and organic chemistry principles in order to collect, interpret and communicate scientific data in multiple formats. The Chemistry degree program equips students with the foundation necessary for transfer to at a four-year institution, so you can confidently continue your studies in the chemical or physical sciences field.
The Academic Passport, a policy of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE), guarantees admission to any of the 14 PASSHE universities to a student with an earned AA or AS degree from a Pennsylvania public community college. A university can stipulate that the associate's degree contain at least 30 credits of liberal arts courses. The Academic Passport does not guarantee admission to specific majors.
