What is Chemistry? It has been defined in various ways. Wikipedia defines it as “the scientific discipline involved with elements and compounds composed of atoms, molecules and ions: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other substances.” Textbooks alternatively define chemistry as the study of change, observing and measuring the world around us, etc. but it can most succinctly be defined as the study of matter and energy.

Chemistry is often called the “central science” because it links the physical, life, and applied sciences. It is foundational for most of the STEM related fields and the chemistry curriculum is designed to foster an understanding of the fundamental principles of chemistry in a variety of applications-medicine, health-care products, energy, food production, body metabolism, structural materials, microelectronics, and the environment. 

View Transfer Options, Degrees & Certificates

The chemistry curriculum is designed to meet the needs of students who wish to pursue a major in (1) chemistry, biology, marine science, geology, physics, medicine, engineering, or technology; (2) paramedical or allied health science, including nursing, dental hygiene, physical therapy, or nutrition; or (3) liberal arts. 

Students learn how chemical knowledge is derived, theorized, and applied in solving problems in everyday life. They perform experiments in a modern chemistry laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment under the guidance of experienced faculty. In addition, students have an opportunity to enhance their understanding of chemical concepts and improve their laboratory skills through a series of computer-aided lessons and exercises. 

Program Length

The Associate of Science degree is comprised of four semesters of chemistry coursework in the major. They are General Chemistry, CHEM 1A and 1B, and Organic Chemistry, CHEM 12A and 12B. In addition to the major courses, students must complete general education courses and have a total of 60 units to earn the degree. Most students can complete this degree in two years by taking a minimum of 15 units per semester. 

Transfer Options

By completing the four chemistry courses in the A.S. degree in Chemistry, students have satisfied the chemistry requirements for all UC and CSU campuses and would only need to complete the remaining major requirements as required by each UC and CSU campus. 

Program Specific Support

Student success is supported through an active Student Success Center, and chemistry students are provided generous tutoring support from well-qualified tutors.

Your Support Team

Your success is our priority! Whether you are just starting, in the middle of, or completing your time at IVC, we have a team of people in your corner to help keep you on-track to reach your goals at IVC and beyond!
