Chemistry is the science of substances, their identification, and their properties; it examines how they interact, combine, and change. This line of inquiry is universally relevant in the world we navigate each day; for example, the screen you’re looking at right now would not exist without the mixing of substances to form the compounds that result in plastic.

Students entering the chemistry program at LBCC with a strong background in high school mathematics and science can expect to complete the program in two years. If you need to take pre-calculus before proceeding, you should expect to spend more than two years in this program.
