An Associate of Science Degree in Chemistry prepares students for work as entry-level technicians, or for articulation or transfer to a Chemistry baccalaureate degree program. The student who earns this degree may have an interest in many different jobs. Entry-level jobs in chemical research, medical laboratories, pharmaceuticals, the petroleum industry, plastics, and chemical manufacturing are all possibilities.
While opportunities exist for people with an associate degree, the higher the degree, the greater the variety of opportunities. Students may want to consider continuing with their education.
