To determine the proper sequence of courses, students should speak with an academic advisor and refer to the My Osprey Map (Course Sequence Guide).
Chemistry offers several unique courses for Fall 2013. They should be of interest to students with no prior science 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. No prior chemistry experience is required and there is no lab associated with it.
This course intends to prepare students to be well-informed citizens. You 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. Some topics are very general: What are the uses of Chemistry in everyday life? Why is Chemistry important? And some are very specific: 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?
Fall 2013 Course Offerings of Interest to Juniors and Seniors
Chemical Informatics (3 Credit Hours) Dr. Stuart Chalk
The world of chemistry information: how and where to access it, manipulate it, design it. Junior or senior standing. Class size is limited to 24 students.
Solid State Chemistry (3 Credit Hours) Dr. Michael Lufaso
Pre-requisites: CHM 3610 and CHM 4410c
This is an advanced course that introduces concepts relating to crystalline structures, bonding forces, superconductivity, electrochemical, magnetic, optical, and conductive properties that underlie extended solids. The lecture provides experimental evidence and theoretical interpretations of the structure and properties of solid-state inorganic compounds. A range of synthetic and physical techniques to prepare and characterize solids is described. Junior or senior standing. Class size is limited to 24 students.
