Chemistry - Associate in Arts
Chemistry is the study of the properties, composition and chemical transformations of all material substances. It is often referred to as the “central science” since it draws from mathematics and physics and forms a necessary background to the understanding of earth science and all the biological disciplines, including the various medical professions. The Chemistry program at SJCC offers courses that satisfy general education requirements, allied-health science, engineers, chemistry, biology and physics majors.
A “C” grade or better is required in all major requirement courses.
Program Learning Outcomes
- Apply increasingly challenging deductive and inductive reasoning to further develop critical thinking, problem solving, and abstract reasoning skills as they progress through the sequence.
- Employ both written and oral skills to effectively communicate scientific information.
- Evaluate and represent laboratory data using simple statistical analyses in terms of accuracy and precision.
- Utilize developed practical laboratory skills involving safe operation of laboratory equipment and materials. We also require each student take and pass (80% correct answers) a standardized safety quiz administered at the beginning of each semester.
