Chemistry

Overview

Chemistry is the study of the properties, composition, and transformations of all material substances. It is often called the "central science" since it draws from mathematics and physics and forms a necessary background to the study of all the earth sciences and all the biological disciplines, including the various medical professions. Sacramento City College chemistry courses are designed to meet the lower division requirements for a major in chemistry in transferring to a four-year institution. For students who plan to transfer, completion of the CSU General-Breadth or IGETC general education pattern is encouraged. It is highly recommended that students meet with a counselor because major and general education requirements vary for each college/university. These courses also fulfill general education requirements for allied health, biological sciences, physical sciences, computer science, and engineering.
