Chemistry is the study of the composition, structure, properties and reaction of matter and substances. At MCC, chemistry courses may be used to satisfy a student's general education core requirements in science.

For those with a chemistry background, employment opportunities are often found as researchers in the food and pharmaceutical industries, academic settings and government agencies with health and agriculture oversight.

For students who are interested in chemistry or who plan to transfer to complete the requirements for a bachelor of science degree in chemistry, enrolling in the the college's Liberal Arts and Science associate of science degree program is a good choice. By entering this program, students are able to start their course work at MCC and take advantage of it high quality instruction and more affordable community college tuition and fees. Students who are thinking about transferring are encouraged to meet with their academic advisors to discuss their plans and how MCC courses transfer to other institutions. More information on the transfer options available at MCC can be found in the Transfer Services portion of the web site.
