The Associate of Science (Chemistry) is a two-year program for students who will transfer to the university to continue study leading to the bachelor's degree in chemistry. Because of the fundamental role it plays in every aspect of the world around us, chemistry is often called the 'Central Science'. A student majoring in chemistry has a deep commitment to understanding how our world exists and operates on a molecular level in accordance with the laws of nature. Chemistry is a very rigorous curriculum that involves physics and mathematics to help students understand the driving force of the chemical reaction. Chemistry students often gravitate to specific fields like organic, inorganic, physical, biochemistry, or materials chemistry.
The Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP) degree is designed to create a smooth transition to all public universities offering a Baccalaureate degree in this major by guaranteeing the transferability of all courses. For transfer to other four-year institutions, contact an advisor at the senior institution. Note: There are to be no course substitutions in this program.
All students graduating with a degree from VSCC are required to take the Educational Testing Service Proficiency Profile (ETSP) to meet graduation requirements. More information can be found at http://www.volstate.edu/Testing/Services.php.
