El Camino College Chemistry Department

Please note--All summer classes will be conducted entirely online (including lab assignments), If there are times listed for your class, keep your scheduled times free because your instructor may present lectures, tests, labs, or assignments during those times. If you have registered for a Flexible Schedule class, check for the required dates in the notes for the class (currently not visible on the searchable schedule). For the fall 2021 semester, a limited number of classes will be held on campus. Please check the class schedule--if a room number is given for a lab, it will be conducted on campus.


A.S. Degree

The program is designed to provide students the opportunity to obtain a degree upon successful completion of the requirements of a chemistry transfer major. The student will acquire the ability to apply fundamental theories and principles of atomic and molecular structure and to understand energy concepts and kinetics in both inorganic and organic reactions. Laboratories are designed to complement the lecture material providing the student with a foundation in quantitative and qualitative chemical techniques. Competencies will be assessed regularly by examining student abilities to predict chemical reactions, explain observed properties and behaviors, write reaction mechanisms, and perform standard laboratory procedures.
