About the Discipline

Northwest Vista College (NVC) offers a variety of chemistry courses for science majors, students pursuing an allied health or nursing career and for non-science majors.

Most of the courses are transfer courses for the student who will eventually pursue a Bachelor's of Science or a Pre-Med degree at a 4-year college or university.

Courses offered for science majors are General Chemistry (2 semesters), Organic Chemistry (2 semesters) and Analytical Chemistry (1 semester).  For the allied health and nursing students, as well as the non-science majors we offer one semester each of Introductory Chemistry I (emphasis on general chemistry) and Introductory Chemistry II (emphasis on Organic and Biochemistry).

All lecture courses have accompanying lab courses that provide direct hands-on experience with chemistry and chemicals.  The labs are tailored towards the demonstration and practice of principles discussed in the lecture class.

The chemistry department offers day-time and evening classes, as well as a series of once-a-week lectures and labs on Fridays.
