4 Units

EVERYDAY CHEMISTRY (GL)

Chemistry 100

A terminal course covering the basic concepts of chemistry and how they relate to our everyday lives. Chemistry concepts are covered at the particulate level and then connected to our macroscopic world. The lab provides deeper exploration and hands-on experiments. This course meets the General Education GL requirement and is designed primarily for non-natural science majors.


5 Units

GENERAL CHEMISTRY I (GL)

Chemistry 102

An introduction to chemistry including matter and energy, atomic and molecular structure, bonding, reactions and stoichiometry, gas laws, and changes of state. This course is primarily designed for natural science, pre-health, and occupational and environmental safety majors needing two or more semesters of chemistry.


5 Units

GENERAL CHEMISTRY II (GL)

Chemistry 104

This course, along with CHEM 102, forms the foundation of further chemistry studies. The topics covered include intermolecular forces, solutions, colligative properties, kinetics, equilibrium, acid-base theory and equilibria, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and nuclear chemistry.


1 Units

INTRODUCTION TO CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 184

An introduction to career tracks and career opportunities in chemistry. This course will feature readings on different career possibilities in chemistry and visiting lectures by practicing chemists. Professional skills, identification of career tracks, and scientific and technical communication will be emphasized. One hour lecture per week.


3 Units

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 251

Introductory chemistry of the compounds of carbon, their structures and reactions. Taken primarily by chemistry majors and pre-professional students. The foundation for understanding organic reactions is established with an emphasis on bonding, functional groups, three dimensional structure of organic molecules, relationship between structure and reactivity, kinetics, and reaction mechanisms. Three hours of lecture per week.


3 Units

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 252

A continuation of CHEM 251. The goal is to further examine the structure & reactivity relationship with emphasis on reactions and synthesis. It also illustrates how structural features considered in 251, combined with organic reactions learned in 252, can be sources of insight in the overall design of natural products and synthesized materials. Three hours of lecture per week.


4 Units

INTRODUCTION TO INORGANIC CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 260

CHEM 260 is an introduction to inorganic chemistry with emphasis on descriptive chemistry, bonding theories, acid-based theories, coordination chemistry and solid state chemistry.


2 Units

ORGANIC CHEMISTRY LABORATORY

Chemistry 261

Basic organic manipulative techniques and simpler syntheses are considered. Spectroscopic topics are introduced. Generally taken concurrently with CHEM 251. Two three-hour laboratories per week.


5 Units

QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS

Chemistry 352

An introduction to volumetric, gravimetric and photometric techniques and fundamental methods of instrumental analysis. Three one-hour lectures and two three-hour laboratory periods per week. (Fall only)


3 Units

PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 370

The general principles governing the behavior of matter are investigated. Topics include atomic structure and quantum machanics, spectroscopy and topics in solid state chemistry. Three hours of lecture weekly. (Fall only)


3 Units

BIOCHEMISTRY OF MACROMOLECULES

Chemistry 454

The chemistry of the major compounds of living organisms, e.g., proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids, are studied. Meets for 3 lectures/week, and is required for all Chemistry majors.


3 Units

ADVANCED ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 455

Lectures on advanced topics in organic chemistry. (Fall only)


1 Units

EXPERIMENTAL PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 470

A laboratory course in experimental physical chemistry. Experiments from various areas of physical chemistry will be performed. Three hours of laboratory per week. (Fall only)


1 Units

INSTRUMENTAL DESIGN AND MAINTENANCE

Chemistry 481

A laboratory course that provides hands-on experince in performing preventative maintenance on instrumentation. Students will study instrumental designs and gain troubleshooting skills. Laboratory instruments covered in this course include balances, IR, GC, GCMS, HPLC, AA, ICP, CVAFS, FS, NMR and UV-VIS.


0.5-1 Units

TOPICS IN CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 484

A course where students will use chemical and scientic literature, introduction to the seminar concept, participation in studies and discussion of current developments in chemistry. The student will review a topic and present that topic orally and in writing. This course may not be used as part of the Chemistry minor.


1 Units

SENIOR HONORS THESIS

Chemistry 488

The senior honors thesis is a requirement of the honors program which is designed to recognize a student's exceptional dedication and ability. Students will complete a substantial research project in their senior year. Results must be written up as a thesis, presented in a seminar, and defended orally.


1-2 Units

SUPERVISED TEACHING AIDE

Chemistry 492

This course provides students with teaching experience in a college-level chemistry laboratory course they have previously taken. It includes instruction on how to best operate as a teaching aide and in depth instruction on the experiments and instrumentation used in that chemistry course. Prereq: Instructor consent


1-3 Units

CHEMISTRY INTERNSHIP

Chemistry 493

Variable Topics


1-3 Units

INDEPENDENT STUDY IN CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 498

Study of a selected topic or topics under the direction of a faculty member. Repeatable for a maximum of 6 credits in major/degree. Credits in this course may not be used to fulfill minor requirements in Chemistry.


0.5-3 Units

INDEPENDENT STUDY - UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH

Chemistry 498R

Study of a selected topic or topics under the direction of a faculty member. Repeatable for a maximum of 6 credits in major/degree. Credits in this course may not be used to fulfill minor requirements in Chemistry.
