    General Education Requirements

    The chemistry curriculum provides students with the knowledge and skills to continue their studies in areas that range from chemistry, medicine, and allied health to agriculture. Chemists may work in many areas that involve research and teaching. 

    The curriculum outlined below is based on most common baccalaureate program requirements.  Students may earn an Associate's degree in Liberal Arts at WSC, but must transfer to a baccalaureate campus to complete a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry.
