To determine the proper sequence of courses, students should speak with an academic advisor and refer to the Academic Roadmap.
Chemistry is offering several unique courses for Fall 2012. They should be of interest to students with no prior scince training or investigating informational processes or those who have an interest in research applications. Here are the course descriptions for them; the upper level courses have limited enrollment.
The Cool Side of Chemistry (3 Credit Hours) Melissa Bush
The only prerequisite is a keen interest in how the world around you works - even if you don't have a lot of science and math background.
What are the uses of Chemistry in everyday life? What's really in the water we drink? How do chemical heatpacks work? How does soap clean? What's the difference between baking soda vs. baking powder? Why is Chemistry important? Students will explore a variety of focus areas in which Chemistry is relevant: consumer products, food & nutrition, the environment, the material world, and the human body. No prior chemistry experience is required and there is no lab associated with it. This course intends to better prepare students to be well-informed citizens.
Chemometrics (3 Credit Hours) Dr. Stuart Chalk
This course introduces students to the use of statistical analysis in Chemistry. Junior or senior standing, and permission of the instructor. Class size is limited to 24 students.
DEPARTMENT PERMISSION REQUIRED
Environmental Chemistry (3 Credit Hours) Dr. Radha Pyati
Pre-requisites: CHM 3120C and CHM 2210
This course examines the sources, reactions, transport, effects, and fates of chemical species in the water, soil, and air environments. This up-to-the-minute course is offered only during the Fall term. Class size is limited to 30 students.
Envioronmental Chemistry Lab (1 Credit Hour) Melissa Bush
Co requisite: CHS 4615
