Basic chemical principles are vital in all areas of science. Understanding how chemicals are structured, operate independently, and interact together, can take you a long way in your chosen science career.
Careers in chemistry give you a wide range of options, from the financial security of working for big companies and government, to the freedom of flexibility that comes with consulting. Either way, you’ll get an engaging, dynamic profession you’ll want to stick with for the long-term.
Take this program if...
You were that kid in elementary school who made the realistic overflowing volcano, and have been fascinated by chemical composition ever since. You love watching reactions when acids and bases are combined and you might even have a poster of the periodic table on your wall. You’re all grown up now and it’s time to turn your passion into a profitable, satisfying career that makes you grin like it did all those years ago.
Combining class theory with hands-on chemical labs, you’ll get the experience you need to set you up for success. Our program gives you chemistry fundamentals so you’ll be ready for further education in areas like engineering, nutrition, pharmacy and science degrees, as you learn the basics of equipment usage, measurement of physical and chemical properties and chemical syntheses.

Please Note: Students interested in engineering or in a science degree in almost any discipline will need to take six credits of survey chemistry during their first year. Second year courses are required for various chemistry and biology-related degree programs, as well as for pre-professional programs such as nutrition and pharmacy. We also offer preparatory chemistry courses for students missing prerequisites.
