About the Program
When you take Chemistry courses at Century, you will not only learn about the structure of atoms and molecules, the states of matter, and the principles of chemical reactivity, you will also learn how scientists think. You will develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and utilize the equipment and technology used by chemists.
Century Chemistry students are regularly accepted into nursing and engineering programs as well as medical and pharmacy schools. In recent years, Century chemistry students have been accepted into the nationally competitive Lando/NSF Chemistry Summer Research Program at the University of Minnesota.
Chemistry Transfer Pathway AS Degree
The Chemistry Transfer Pathway AS degree offers students a powerful option: the opportunity to complete an associate degree whose course credits will directly transfer to designated Chemistry bachelor’s degree programs at Minnesota State universities. The entire curriculum has been carefully designed to guarantee junior-year status to students who have been admitted to one of the seven Minnesota State universities. There, students can complete their bachelor’s degree by earning 60 additional credits.
Minnesota State universities include: Bemidji State University; Metropolitan State University; Minnesota State University, Mankato; Minnesota State University Moorhead; Southwest Minnesota State University; St. Cloud State University; and Winona State University.
Transfer Pathway degrees may transfer to colleges and universities outside of the Minnesota State system, such as private and out-of-state schools. It is highly recommended that students interested in this possibility contact their intended transfer school, advisor/counselor, and program instructors for academic planning assistance.
