Chemistry

 

Why study in Chemistry?

Our programs are not limited to only those individuals interested in earning a degree in chemistry. Many students interested in pursuing the first two years of a program leading to a professional degree—pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, pre-mortuary science, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-veterinary, etc.) start with one of Sinclair’s science degree programs. If you are interested in starting a program with that intent, you should first meet with an academic advisor to plan your program.

Why enroll in these courses?

Sinclair offers an Associate of Science Chemistry Degree (CHEE.S.AS) for students who are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a Bachelor’s degree program that requires two years of college chemistry.

Our Chemistry courses satisfy the General Education Science requirement for the Ohio Transfer Module and the Ohio Transfer Assurance Guides for completion of A.A. and A.S. degree programs.

Associate of Science
Chemistry

The Associate of Science degree in Chemistry fulfills the freshman and sophomore general education and degree-specific requirements for students transferring to programs which require General and Organic Chemistry at most four-year colleges and universities. Recipients of this degree may be able to apply for laboratory technician or research assistant positions. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.
