Chemistry Course Descriptions

CHM-designated courses qualify as Natural Science or Liberal Arts electives.

CHM115

General Chemistry I - 3 Credits

Introduction to chemical principles including atomic and molecular structure, properties of the elements, stoichiometry, atomic bonding, chemical reactions, and the ideal gas law will be discussed in this introductory course.

Laboratory fee required. Prerequisite: MAT120

This class was previously called CHM105.



CHM115L

General Chemistry I Lab - 1 Credit

This course is an inquiry-based study of General Chemistry I topics that will provide hands-on application of appropriate lecture material and reinforce both the quantitative and qualitative components of chemistry. This course must be taken concurrently with CHM115.

Laboratory fee required.

This class was previously called CHM105 Lab.



CHM116

General Chemistry II - 3 Credits

Principles learned in General Chemistry I will be expanded in the course to include kinetics, equilibrium, thermodynamics, solubility, and pH.

Laboratory fee required. Prerequisite: CHM115 and CHM115L

This class was previously called CHM106.



CHM116L

General Chemistry II Lab - 1 Credit

This lab course in an inquiry-based study of General Chemistry II topics that will provide hands-on application of appropriate lecture material and reinforce both the quantitative and qualitative components of chemistry. This course must be taken concurrently with CHM1166.

Laboratory fee required.

This class was previously called CHM106 Lab.



CHM205

Organic Chemistry I - 3 Credits

Organic Chemistry I is a focused study of carbon-containing compounds and their functional groups, chemical characteristics and physical properties. The synthesis of several organic compounds will also be discussed (aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, aldehydes, ethers, etc.), along with spectroscopy.

Prerequisite: CHM115, CHM116



CHM206

Organic Chemistry II - 3 Credits

Organic Chemistry II is a continuation of the study of organic molecules and compounds. The functional groups, chemical characteristics, physical properties and synthesis of biological macromolecules (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids), and biochemistry will be the focal point of course discussions.

Prerequisite: CHM205
