Catalog Year 2017/2018

Chemistry Area of Concentration within the A.S. in STEM
Offers a variety of science and math courses for students pursuing a course of study in chemistry. Students planning to transfer to a four-year college should check the requirements of that institution. If there are significant differences, the student should consult an advisor for guidance.
  • Students must complete their credit English and Mathematics within the first 24 credits.
  • One general education course must meet the cultural competence graduation requirement (list page 43).
  • CORE: The General Education CORE (page 42) is that foundation of the higher education curriculum providing a coherent intellectual experience for all students. Students should check with an advisor or the transfer institution (ARTSYS) before selecting General Education CORE requirements.
