The associate degree program in chemistry prepares students to begin upper-division
work leading to a baccalaureate degree in chemistry or chemical engineering. It also
provides some of the support courses required for the baccalaureate degree.
The graduate of the AA program in chemistry will:
- Solve quantitative chemistry problems and demonstrate reasoning clearly and completely.
Integrate multiple ideas in the problem solving process.
- Apply problem-solving skills related to the nature of matter, solutions, phase changes,
chemical reactions, stoichiometry, energy transformations, atomic and molecular structure, quantum
theory, chemical bonding, intermolecular forces, periodic properties, thermodynamics,
kinetics, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases, electrochemistry and nuclear chemistry.
- Design, construct and interpret graphs accurately.
- Perform laboratory techniques correctly using appropriate safety procedures.

"Starting at Allan Hancock College I encountered several obstacles; one of them was the language barrier. My writing skill was terrible; but AHC gave me an opportunity to improve my English skills. My dream from the beginning was to transfer to a university. At AHC, I had a great experience with my instructors and the people I worked with. They were inspirational; they motivated me to never give-up but persevere in my education journey."
