The Associate in Science in Chemistry for Transfer Degree is designed for students desiring advanced degrees in Chemistry. The Los Medanos College Chemistry courses meet the lower division transfer requirements for Chemistry. The curriculum includes the first and second year requirements to prepare students to transfer and study at a California State University. Transferring and completing a baccalaureate degree in Chemistry can lead to careers as agricultural and food scientists; chemists and materials scientists; elementary, middle, and high school teachers; environmental scientists; forensic scientists; materials engineers; occupational health and safety specialists; research technicians; government laboratory technicians; medical technicians; petroleum chemists; pharmacists; scientific writers and/or artists.
