Overview Degrees/Certificates Courses Faculty


Folsom Lake College Chemistry

The chemistry curriculum at Folsom Lake College consists of:

  • A series of chemistry courses designed to meet transfer requirements for physical and biological science majors and allied health majors.
  • A series of courses intended for students majoring in fields other than chemistry, biology, or physical science seeking to fulfill general education science requirements.
  • An entry level course that provides preparation or review of more basic concepts.

All chemistry courses at FLC include a practical component where students conduct hands-on chemical experimentation in a modern, well-equipped laboratory.

All chemistry students are required to wear closed-toe shoes at all times in the chemistry laboratory. Students are also required to wear indirect-vent safety goggles (safety glasses are not acceptable) while working in the laboratory.

Note: Construction is currently underway on Folsom Lake College’s new Science Building at the main campus. Upon completion, the 75,000 gross sq. ft. instructional building, which will be named Oak Hall, will be the largest science facility within the Los Rios Community College District and will house six Biology labs, six Chemistry labs, and a 4,000 sq. ft. Science Center.
