• Medicinal Chemistry (CHEM 332, 4 credits) by Dr. Megan Bolitho. This course is an elective option for the Major in Chemistry and the elective requirement for the Minor in Chemistry.
• Materials Chemistry (A Special Topic: CHEM 386, 2 credits) by Dr. Giovanni Meloni. This course is an elective option for the Major in Chemistry and the elective requirement for the Minor in Chemistry.
Important General Chemistry I and II (CHEM 111 and 113) information for Summer and Fall 2013:
CHEM 111 and CHEM 113 include the lecture and lab through Summer 2013. Each course is 4 credits through the summer.
Effective Fall 2013, the lecture and lab will be separated so that CHEM 111 is the lecture portion only and CHEM 112 is the accompanying lab. In Spring 2014, CHEM 113 is the lecture portion only and CHEM 114 is the accompanying lab. CHEM 111 and 112 will now be offered every semester and summer while CHEM 113 and 114 will still be offered every spring and summer. More information >>
