Chemistry Program at EAC

Careers in chemistry generally require at least a bachelor’s degree, and EA is a smart place to launch the academic training needed to work in this exciting field. Our associate degree program meets the requirements for the first two years of a four-year bachelor’s program at Arizona’s public, and many other, universities. You can transfer with junior status after building a strong academic foundation in small, stimulating classes taught by quality faculty and offered at an extremely affordable tuition cost. You are encouraged to work closely with an academic adviser and consult the official transfer guide to ensure you are on the correct course to maximize course transferability. You should complete two years of algebra and one year of chemistry in high school or the equivalent college courses to enter the program.
