A.S. - Transfer Degree
This program is designed for those students pursuing a career in chemistry or in a related field for which chemistry is an integral part.
Graduates will demonstrate (1) basic knowledge in chemistry that will prepare them for transfer to the university and (2) critical thinking skills in AWC’s General Education focus areas.
- Convert among various units of measurements.
- Perform various calculations involving chemical equations.
- Predict and explain subatomic particle behavior and periodic trends.
- Determine and calculate reaction rates and predict the order of a reaction based on either numerical (relative rates and half-lives) or graphical kinetic (reaction rate) data.
- Interpret stereochemical, spectral, and/or mechanistic information to propose a plausible structure or to confirm an existing molecular structure from the data given.
- Recognize, predict, and explain the influences of molecular structure on chemical reactivity.
