Chemistry

Associate in Science

This degree can lead to a baccalaureate degree in chemistry at accredited colleges or universities. With the addition of biology courses, and some modifications, it is also appropriate for those interested in pharmacy, medicine, dentistry, environmental science, and chemical engineering.  Electives should be selected based on the student’s interest, the requirements of the transfer institution, or technical-level vocation opportunities. Basic Skills requirements must be met before entry into the program. Some courses require prerequisites; check course descriptions.

For further information, contact faculty advisor, Laurie Lemons at (609) 343-5019/llemons@atlantic.edu; or faculty advisor, John Stratton, at (609) 343-4981/stratton@atlantic.edu; or contact area coordinator, Amy Shelton, at (609) 343-4973/ashelton@atlantic.edu.

Upon Completion of this program students will be able to:

  • Develop work ethics that are effective and safe in a laboratory environment;
  • Apply the scientific method to collect and interpret information;
  • Experiment with laboratory and field equipment to obtain data;
  • Accurately analyze records of results and procedures;
  • Discuss effectively, both orally and in writing;
  • Analyze and evaluate problems critically; and
  • Use the power of computers in applications in chemistry.
