A career in chemistry can lead you to a wide variety of careers in agriculture, education, government and the pharmaceutical industry, among other areas. If you enjoy research, conducting experiments and like working with specialized equipment and computers, consider chemistry for your career path. Chemistry is the science of matter, its characterization, composition, and its transformations. An understanding of chemistry is basic to the physical and biological sciences and fundamental in a variety of occupations. Specialized fields of chemistry are inorganic, organic, physical, nuclear, biochemistry, and chemical engineering. Chaffey College offers the first two years of the baccalaureate degree chemistry curriculum.

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon the successful completion of this degree, students should be able to:
- Apply critical thinking, hypothesis driven methods of scientific inquiry, and the mathematical skills to calculations and problem solving, predicting mechanisms, developing synthetic schemes, scientific data presented in literature, and evaluation of empirically developed data.
- Apply chemical and physical concepts, symbolism, language, atomic structure and use of periodic table to describe the changes that matter undergoes and the application of chemistry.
- Apply experimental techniques to the laboratory environment as demonstrated by safe handling and disposal of chemicals, obtaining accurate and precise data, evaluating and validating scientific data, correctly using scientific instruments, and using proper laboratory etiquette.
- Provide technical information in a clear and concise manner to demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills for chemical and physical concepts, results of laboratory experiments, and articles in the scientific literature.
To obtain an associate’s degree, students must complete both the major requirements
below and the graduation requirements listed on pages 33-34 of the catalog
The chemistry club promotes awareness of chemistry on and off campus.
Anyone interested in chemistry is welcome to join. We do interesting chemistry demonstrations, participate in volunteer activities, take field trips, attend special lectures, tutor introductory chemistry students, etc. We are a club of much diversity, fun and interests. So come and meet new people, get involved in extracurricular activities and have fun.
