- Identify the basic areas of Chemistry that are appropriate to each Chemistry course. This content will allow students to continue in successive Chemistry courses, as well as relate to knowledge for matriculation and life-long learning.
- Comprehend and use laboratory skills in synthetic, quantitative and instrumental methods as scientific approaches to gathering and verifying knowledge.
- Demonstrate critical thinking in Chemistry including interpretation, evaluation, explanation and critical inquiry, how to ask appropriate questions, gather relevant information efficiently and creatively, sort through this information, reason logically from this information and come to reliable and trustworthy conclusions.
- Collect, analyze and articulate results clearly and effectively in speech and in writing in an acceptable style of presentation.
CSUGE for STEM and IGETC for STEM are the only approved general education patterns for this degree.
Prospective transfer students should complete the general education and lower division requirements of the school to which they will be transferring (CSUGE Breadth for STEM or IGETC for STEM). See a counselor for details. Information is also available at www.assist.org.
