Chemistry Transfer Track

Chemistry is broadly defined as the physical science of matter and the changes matter undergoes. This discipline includes the study of atoms and molecules and how these sub-microscopic objects combine with one another in chemical reactions. Understanding the fundamentals of chemistry serves as a foundation to nearly all other areas of science. Applications of chemistry are widespread in industry, environmental science, and medicine. A few careers that rely heavily on chemical principles are chemical engineering, biology, pharmacy, pharmacology, medicine, veterinary medicine, geology, psychology, criminology, business, industry, law, journalism, and art.
