Associate of Science in Major in Chemistry

The Chemistry major prepares students to transfer to four-year institutions for continued study in the field of chemistry. While an A.S. degree may be sufficient for an individual to secure employment as an environmental technician, laboratory technician, safety manager, sanitarian, or water-quality analyst, most careers in the field require a B.S. or advanced degree. Analytical chemist, biochemist, biotechnologist, dentist, educator, forensic specialist, environmental/industrial health engineer, pharmacist, physician, research chemist, and veterinarian are some of the careers for which an Associate degree in Chemistry prepares a student who subsequently obtains a university degree in the field.
