Associate in Science, Transfer Track #1, AS-T, Planning Guide

Program Overview


The Chemistry program at Skagit Valley College is designed to serve the diverse needs of the community by inspiring students with an interest in discovery and a desire for lifelong learning, as well as by promoting critical thinking skills. The Chemistry program provides solid foundations in general chemistry (CHEM& 121 , CHEM& 161 , CHEM& 162 , and CHEM& 163 ) and organic chemistry (CHEM& 131 , CHEM& 241 , CHEM& 242 , and CHEM& 243 ) for students majoring in science, engineering, nursing, and environmental science. CHEM& 121  and CHEM& 131  form a series designed for health and environmental sciences students. The CHEM& 160 series is designed for science and engineering majors. The CHEM& 200 series is designed for science majors. All include lab work. Non-science majors with an interest in chemistry should take CHEM& 105  or CHEM& 110  which are excellent classes for those with no chemistry experience to take in preparation for other chemistry courses. CHEM& 105  is a non-lab course and CHEM& 110  includes a lab.
