Chemistry

The objectives of the chemistry department are to prepare pre-professional chemists, chemical engineers, and chemical education majors, and to give an effective background in chemistry for work in biology, physics, home economics, agriculture, pre-medicine, and elementary education. A co-objective is to prepare students for careers in chemical technology where emphasis is placed on applied chemistry for modern laboratory instrumentation. The chemistry curriculum is intended to be general enough to fulfill these objectives for the major or the nonmajor’s requirements for the first two years of college chemistry. Students are responsible for checking the catalog of the senior college to which they plan to transfer to determine which courses are compatible with the senior college degree program.
