Chemistry

For students planning to pursue a Chemistry major and transfer to a four-year institution, as a general rule, students should follow the Associate of Science Degree in General Studies at Grayson College as part of the Science and Technology Career Pathway. All students are advised to counsel with the university/college of their choice to determine which courses offered at Grayson College are applicable to that institution's bachelor's degree in their desired major. 

Survey course introducing chemistry. Topics may include inorganic, organic, biochemistry,food/physiological chemistry, and environmental/consumer chemistry. Designed for non-science and allied health students. Organic and biological chemistry are emphasized. This course provides the basic chemical background for understanding metabolism and other biological processes which occur in living organisms. Not to be taken by science majors.
