What is Chemistry Emphasis 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 can I do with this degree?

An associate (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.


Program Outcomes

All students who complete a degree designated as a 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 Are My Options to Pay for This Degree?

Apply for financial aid at A student is encouraged to apply early for financial aid and must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the FAFSA Renewal Application as soon as possible after October 1 to ensure that the Financial Aid Office receives the Institutional Student Information Record and other documents prior to the priority deadline.
