The Chemistry emphasis (Tennessee Transfer Pathway) provides the student with the basic skills in preparation for advanced chemical principles. This curriculum includes transfer credits that satisfy the requirements of the first two years in chemistry. Generally, this program provides the student with an understanding of the material world, with knowledge of the ever-changing processes of life, with the skills of inquiry necessary for work in chemistry, and with an understanding of the ethical responsibilities of being a scientist. Students enrolling in the Chemistry emphasis should plan to pursue a baccalaureate degree with
a major in chemistry that prepares them for opportunities in such diverse areas as secondary teaching, laboratory science, industrial research, the allied health fields and chemical engineering.

To facilitate success in this program, all students should enroll in ORN 1010 Orientation: Learning to Succeed during their first
semester at DSCC.

Note: During the sophomore year, all students planning to teach should meet the PRAXIS Core Academic Skills for Educators or ACT testing requirements for their transfer institution.
