Mastering Chemistry

The goals of the Chemistry Program at OCCC for students completing a curriculum pattern for an AS degree in chemistry, pre-dentistry, pre-medicine, or pre-pharmacy are as follows:

  1. Students will be able to apply concepts, principles, and techniques of chemistry to solve chemically oriented problems. 
  2. Students will be able to identify and apply standard chemical laboratory techniques to acquire empirical data that can be used to solve chemical problems.
  3. Students will be able to correctly analyze laboratory data.
  4. Students will be able to write clear conclusions that they support with appropriate data and data analysis.
  5. Students will be able to follow written laboratory procedures to safely and correctly complete a laboratory experiment.

Students who meet these outcomes will be well prepared for success in future chemistry classes at transfer institutions and in professional programs.
