Chemistry A.S. (TTP)
Students acquire a thorough background in the principles and theory of chemistry. Chemistry is known as the "science of matter," specifically for it's emphasize of chemical reactions, composition, structure and properties.
Students are prepared for professional programs leading to rewarding careers in industry, government, and academics. About half of all chemists work in research, with about two-thirds of the bachelor's-level chemistry graduates working in the for-profit sector.
Employment may be found in the fields of chemical manufacturing, cosmetics, environmental assessment, manufacturing and processing, medical laboratories, petroleum, and pharmaceuticals. Federal, state and local governments employ chemists in regulatory positions dealing with the environment, food and agriculture, sanitation, business and industry, and forensics. Educators with chemistry degrees are always in high demand and many chemists are successful as self-employed consultants.
What is a TTP?
Tennessee Transfer Pathways are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university to complete their baccalaureate degree. The Tennessee Transfer Pathways also constitute an agreement between community colleges and universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. A student who completes all the courses listed on a particular Transfer Pathway will earn an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at Chattanooga State. When the student transfers to a Tennessee public university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, he or she is guaranteed that all courses transfer.
