Chemistry

In the chemistry program at Casper College, you’ll develop the lab skills and science knowledge you need to succeed at a four-year institution, as well as in your future science career.

You’ll be challenged by a combination of classroom and lab work. Alongside your chemistry professors, you’ll gain hands-on lab experience. You’ll develop critical thinking, problem-solving and communication skills.

This is a transfer program for those intending to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

Large, well-lighted laboratories that have the latest in automated ventilation control and many other safety features. Classrooms are spacious and bright. Students benefit from small lecture sections of thirty or less. Laboratory sections are never larger than sixteen. Separate question and answer sessions are held in addition to lectures.

Faculty offer courses, with laboratories, in introductory, general, organic, and analytical chemistry to serve students majoring in numerous physical and biological sciences including engineering and pre-professional health sciences. Faculty are experienced full-time teachers who are not obligated to direct research programs and who are very accessible to students for out-of-class questions and consultations.
