TCC Chemistry AS to NSU Chemistry-Biochemistry BS
TCC Chemistry AS to NSU Chemistry-Environmental BS
Chemistry is all around us - in what we eat, what we breathe, how we live and what we are. Chemists study not only what things are, but also what they do and how they do it. Nearly all sciences and advances in fields such as molecular biology, environmental science, materials science and medicinal chemistry are built upon an understanding of chemistry. Obtaining an undergraduate degree in chemistry prepares you for many different careers, including employment as a research chemist or a lab technician in industrial quality control, environmental assessment, forensics, patent law or education. Furthermore, the chemistry program prepares you for pursuing advanced degrees or in entering health-related professional schools (medical, pharmacy, dental, optometry, chiropractic, etc.).
NSU's chemistry programs are approved by the American Chemical Society, 1155 Sixteenth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20036, 1-800-333-9511 (US and Canada), 614-447-3776 (outside North America), www.acs.org .
Students may receive an ACS certified Chemistry major with the Biochemistry option if they complete the following courses: CHEM 3413 Inorganic Chemistry, CHEM 4524 Physical Chemistry I, MATH 2624 Calculus II, PHYS 1215 General Physics II or PHYS 2215 Engineering Physics II (see below).
