Associate of Science (A.S.) in Science
Transfer Pattern - Chemistry
General Education - 38 Credits
General Education Requirements:
General Education Electives:
(Choose courses in each category from the list of approved General Education Courses . One 3-credit General Education course must be Diversity Course.)
- Arts and Humanities 3 Credits.
- Social and Behavioral Sciences (From two different disciplines) 6 Credits.
- Biological and Physical Sciences (Recommended: BIOL 110 - Biology I: Molecular and Cells ) 4 Credits.
- Wellness and Health 3 Credits.
- Information Technology 3 Credits.
- Global, Historical and Cultural Perspectives 2 Credits.
Program Requirements - 16 Credits
Program Electives - 6-7 Credits.
Recommended (Select at least 6-7 credits):
Total Number of Credits Required for Degree: 60 min.*
*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to a minimum of 61 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Transfer Pattern Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:
- apply inorganic and organic chemical principles required for entry into science, engineering, and professional health programs, such as chemistry, biology, forensic science, environmental science, pharmacy school, dental school, dental hygiene program and nursing program, or for continuation at a four-year institution;
- name and write formulas for inorganic and organic compounds;
- predict outcomes of inorganic and organic reactions and write balanced chemical equations;
- perform chemical calculations such as those involved in stoichiometry, thermodynamics, titrations, chemical kinetics, and chemical equilibrium;
- utilize chemical terminology to explain, orally and in writing, the molecular perspective of inorganic and organic chemistry;
- predict the stereochemistry and structure of the products and mechanisms involved, resulting from selected organic reagents;
- use computers to gather and analyze data and/or to perform calculations;
- use laboratory equipment, instruments and chemicals appropriately and safely in both the inorganic and organic laboratories;
- use chemical data and scientific methods to solve problems involving chemical topics;
- make and record observations and accurate measurements in an investigative laboratory setting;
- communicate the results of laboratory investigations orally and in writing in a thorough and accurate manner;
- interpret infrared, uv-visible, nmr and mass spectra of organic compounds and assign structures to the compounds; and plan and conduct multistep syntheses, including separation, purification and characterization.
Transfer Pattern Description:
This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Chemistry. Beyond the General Education requirements and options, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or an advisor for information about specific requirements.
