What is Chemistry Emphasis: General Transfer Major, A.S. (TTP)?

The Chemistry emphasis is designed to prepare students for transfer to a bachelor’s degree granting institution.  This program prepares students for more advanced study in a pathway through which students can pursue careers in natural science, engineering, medicine, allied health or science education.

What will I learn?

All students who complete a degree designated as the Tennessee Transfer Pathway will be able to do the following:

  • Conduct an experiment, collect and analyze data, and interpret results in a laboratory setting.
  • Analyze, evaluate, and test a scientific hypothesis.
  • Use basic scientific language and processes, and be able to distinguish between scientific and non-scientific explanations.
  • Identify unifying principles and repeatable patterns in nature, the values of natural diversity, and apply them to problems or issues of a scientific nature.
  • Upon completion of an Associate of Science program, students will be able to demonstrate a broad understanding of scientific principles and concepts.

What can I do with this degree?

An Associates (AS) or advanced (BS, MS, PhD) degree in Chemistry provides the training necessary for a number of jobs in industry, academia, and government.  Some popular in our local service area include:


Chemical Technician (AS):  Conduct chemical and physical laboratory tests to assist scientists in making qualitative and quantitative analyses of solids, liquids, and gaseous materials for research and development of new products or processes, quality control, maintenance of environmental standards, and other work involving experimental, theoretical, or practical application of chemistry and related sciences. 

Chemist (advanced degree):  Conduct qualitative and quantitative chemical analyses or experiments in laboratories for quality or process control or to develop new products or knowledge.

What is the cost?

  • State residents: $152 per credit hour
  • Out-of-State residents: $475 per credit hour
  • Registration fees vary but are applied to your tuition costs for summary. You can check the updated page for fees, tuition, and expenses.
