Chemistry, A.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Chemistry is a foundation science with courses emphasizing an understanding of the fundamental principles of this physical science. Chemistry offers several entry level courses which can be used to fulfill the college’s lab science requirement. Chemistry courses also are an integral part of the curriculum for other sciences, engineering and the health professions.

Individuals who want to specialize in chemistry should work closely with their advisor to devise a suitable associate of science degree program.

The Associate of Science in Chemistry emphasizes the traditional two semester sequence of general inorganic chemistry followed by two semesters of organic chemistry. The program has sufficient flexibility to allow students to transfer to a variety of four-year schools offering bachelor’s degrees in chemistry. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
