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 also 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. In fall 2008, we moved into our brand new science and library building, with state-of-the-art facilities.

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.
