Study chemistry and build a solid foundation in general education classes at EICC. With low-cost tuition and guaranteed transfer agreements in place, this is a smart way to do your first two years. Small classes instead of huge lecture sections are a bonus, too!
What You Learn as a Chemistry Transfer Major
You get a broad education with an emphasis in chemistry and mathematics. Learn about the nature, behavior, and characteristics of substances that exist in the universe. Spend time in the classroom and hands-on in the lab.
What Can I Do With a Chemistry Degree?
Chemists study substances at the atomic and molecular level, and analyze how they interact. Work as a chemical engineer and improve drugs, fuel, food, and products used throughout the world. Be a chemical technician and conduct lab tests and analyze materials. Are you dedicated to protecting health and nature? With additional education and training, you could also teach.
A Solid Foundation
It's a blast!
Learn about atomic structures, chemical bonding, and get hands-on in the lab.
The basis for all life, and pharmaceuticals, plastics, and more.
How's that work?
It predicts rate of change and describes everything from the universe to sound.
Round out your education. Build core skills. Complete transfer requirements.
What are Transfer Majors
The Chemistry Transfer Major is part of EICC's statewide Transfer Major associate's degree program. It was developed through a partnership between Iowa's community colleges, public universities, and many private colleges. It outlines the precise courses you need to complete if you want to transfer to a four-year college and study a specific major. The partner colleges and universities have approved the EICC courses, so all the credits you earn with us fully transfer toward your bachelor's degree. It's streamlined and simple.
If EICC is your first stop to a four-year degree, this is a great option!

2+2 = Savings
Here’s a secret: biology is biology no matter where you take the course. But the cost isn’t the same. Do your first two years at EICC and wipe out those required general education courses, then transfer to finish your Bachelor’s degree. The 24 months and 60+ credits you earn with us will cost less than one semester at most public or private universities. Save your money. High-quality and low-cost. That’s our niche.
Need some extra help? We offer drop-in and scheduled tutoring on each campus, and online, too. You can also get a writing consultation via email. Visit our tutoring centers for more information on services and schedules.EXPLORE ACADEMIC RESOURCES
