At Los Angeles Mission College our goal is to move students forward. The Chemistry Department is no different. Our staff is dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and move forward in their chosen career goals; as well as transfer to Universities such as UCLA, USC, U.C. Irvine, Caltech, Occidental, U.C. Santa Barbara, CSUN, U.C. Berkeley, U.C. Davis and countless other Universities. Information for most of the classes we offer here at Mission College such as lecture notes and lab manuals can be found at ProfPaz. Another place students have is the Science Success Center (SSC) located on campus in the ​Health, Fitness and Athletics Complex (HFAC-108). Furthermore here at Mission we pride ourselves in making learning an interactive experience by inviting students to join discussions about their classes on course canvas shells. This gives students a chance to ask questions and get answers outside the confines of a classroom environment.
