Chemistry majors are curious, analytical, and self-starting leaders. They have strong written and verbal communication skills and are good at math, physics, and biology. A chemistry student may like to perform experiments and work with their hands.
Chemistry education prepares students for careers as professional chemists and serves as a foundation for careers in other fields such as biology and medicine. The curriculum offers a thorough fundamental knowledge of the major fields of chemistry, covering the general areas of inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, plus other specialized courses including analytical, and biochemistry. Students gain laboratory experience in inorganic and organic synthesis, analytical methods, physical chemical measurements, spectroscopy, and biochemical engineering. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the scientific opportunities available in the department by joining a research group mentored by our expert faculty.

Transfer to another college or university
LCCC is a great place to start. You can complete the first years of your education at LCCC at our lower tuition rate and then transfer your credits to another college or university to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree.
Getting started while you’re still in high school
You don’t have to wait to graduate from high school to start earning college credit.
The College Credit Plus program offers you an opportunity to earn college credit as early as seventh grade. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Students may also have the option of taking LCCC classes online or on our campus. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit and are FREE for most students.
The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school!
