Spend two years in the mountains building your foundation for mastering chemistry

The Associate of Science Chemistry Emphasis program covers your general education requirements with a strong emphasis on math and science aligned for transfer into a chemistry program at a 4-year institution.

Chemistry is the central science. It connects on one side with physics and mathematics, on another with earth and environmental sciences, and on yet another with biology and medicine.

Chemists and biochemists are always in demand. Here are just a few examples: chemist in a crime lab; environmental chemist; high school chemistry teacher.

Chemistry is also an excellent major for students planning careers in health professions such as medicine, dentistry, optometry and veterinary medicine. Many students have found a chemistry background gives them a distinct advantage in medical or dental school. Dentistry, medicine and optometry all require chemistry for admission. Almost every medical school requires one year of general chemistry and one year of organic chemistry.
