Curriculum Code: 413

Program Information
This program prepares students for transfer into baccalaureate programs leading to careers in fields such as industrial chemist, pharmaceutical chemist, medicine and pharmacy.

When You Graduate
When You Graduate AS programs are primarily designed for students who plan to transfer as juniors at four- year colleges and universities. CCC graduates have obtained bachelor’s degrees and beyond from every college in New Jersey and scores of colleges and universities throughout America. Cumberland has transfer agreements with a number of four-year colleges and universities. As a graduate of a fully accredited community college, your coursework will be received with full credit transfer at most state colleges, public and private universities across the country. The NJ Lampitt bill passed in 2008 by the NJ State legislature assures seamless transfer of credits toward junior standing at NJ state colleges and universities.

Upon completion of this program, student should be able to:
•Use laboratory techniques and equipment available that are commonly encountered in an undergraduate chemistry setting (possibilities including: infra-red spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers, melting-point apparatus, polarimeters, and refractometers, titrations, filtrations, distillations, and chromatography). •Apply the scientific method to solve chemistry problems and draw conclusions. •Construct physical or computer models of atomic and molecular structure, and describe their relationship to physical and chemical properties. •Locate, interpret, and critically evaluate appropriate information and the information sources pertaining to chemistry. •Demonstrate clear, organized written and oral skills in communicating basic scientific concepts and procedures, and in reporting and explaining results of chemical experiments.
