Chemistry & Geosciences
Our department offers students a wide range of courses in chemistry, geology, and geography. We offer A.S. degrees in Chemistry, Geology, and Geography as well as a Geospatial Information Science Technology (GIST) Certificate and GIST micro-credential. An Earth Sciences micro-credential for New York State K-12 science teachers has recently been developed as well. Our faculty instruct SCI 131, Integrated Science for Future Teachers, as part of MCC's Education Programs.
Additionally, the department supports the Chemistry Club as well as the Mapping Club, which provides Geography & GIST students with leadership opportunities. We also operate MCC's WeatherWeb weather station based at the Brighton campus.
