  • CHEM 141 (3-3-0) General Chemistry I Lecture: The first course of a two semester sequence in introductory chemistry that studies measurement and uncertainty, atomic structure, nomenclature, stoichiometry, types of reactions, solution concentrations, gas laws, thermochemistry, electronic configuration, periodic properties of the elements, and chemical bonding (including molecular geometries).
  • CHEM 142 (1-0-3) General Chemistry I Laboratory: This laboratory course that accompanies CHEM 141 introduces laboratory techniques, physical properties, stoichiometry, gas laws, and types of chemical reactions. Safe laboratory techniques and the writing of quality laboratory reports will be emphasized.
  • CHEM 161 (3-3-0)  General Chemistry II Lecture: The second part of a two semester (one year) course in college level chemistry. The course investigates kinetics, chemical equilibria, acid-base equilibria, solubility equilibria, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry.
  • CHEM 162 (1-0-3) General Chemistry II Laboratory: This continuation of the General Chemistry I Laboratory (CHEM 142) investigates solution properties, kinetics, chemical equilibria, acid-base equilibria, solubility equilibria, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and qualitative and elementary quantitative analysis.
  • CHEM 211 (3-3-0) Analytical Chemistry Lecture: A one semester course that investigates the principles of quantitative analytical chemistry and how these principles are applied in chemistry and related disciplines. Lecture and laboratory concentrate on tools, experimental error, statistics, quality assurance, calibration methods, systematic treatment of equilibrium, acid-base titration, EDTA titration, redox titration, gravimetric analysis, introduction to electroanalytical and spectrometric methods, concepts of analytical separation and application of Excel in analytical chemistry.
  • CHEM 212 (2-0-6) Analytical Chemistry Lab: A one-semester analytical chemistry laboratory course that investigates the principles of quantitative analytical chemistry and how the principles and techniques of classical methods (e.g., gravimetric, titrimetric, and redox) of analysis and some of the most common instrumental methods (e.g., spectrometric and separation techniques) are applied in chemistry and related disciplines. Laboratory experimentations will involve the use of these analytical techniques in the determination of substances in a variety of sample matrices.
  • CHEM 310 (4-2-4) Instrumental Analysis: Principles of operation and application of modern chemical instrumentation used in analytical chemistry. Topics include statistics, spectrophotometry, mass spectrometry, Raman spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, electroanalytical, and separation science. Reinforcement of these techniques by practical experience, aspects of sample preparation, standardization, data acquisition and interpretation.
  • CHEM 410 (1-0-3) Seminar in Chemical Literature: A detailed examination of the chemical literature on a relatively narrow topic for presentation of written and oral reports.
  • CHEM 424 (3-3-0) Separation Science: The course introduces the modern physical and chemical techniques used for analytical separations. The primary theme of chromatography includes gas chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography, and supercritical fluid chromatography. Other important analytical separation techniques to be discussed include capillary electrophoresis, field-flow fractionation, size exclusion chromatography, and chromatographic measurements of physicochemical, biochemical, and geochemical processes.
  • CHEM 430 Special Topics in Chemistry: An advanced, structured investigation in one of the specialty areas of chemistry.
  • CHEM 490 (4-1-6) Chemistry Research and Ethics: A capstone research course for seniors that offers a comprehensive examination of the Chemistry curriculum. The course provides detailed training in ethics education, literature reading and review, research planning, hands-on research practicing, lab reports, and oral/ written presentations. Students must adopt a research area and work with a research advisor.
  • NSCI 110 Comprehensive Physical Science: A course that presents the ideas, concepts and laws of physics and chemistry at an introductory level for non-science majors. A series of laboratory/recitation sessions is be used to illustrate the fundamental concepts.
