Bachelor of Science Delivery Mode s: The general chemistry major prepares the graduate for the many diverse career opportunities available to the chemist in government, private industry and academia. The general chemistry major is similar to the research chemistry major but with greater flexibility for the addition of electives during the senior year.
CHE Chemistry and Society This course is an introduction to the Natural Sciences through the study of relevant scientific issues set in their political, economic, social, international and ethical context.
The course content enables students to learn the specific natural science of chemistry in the framework of their own lives and significant issues facing science and the world.
The chemical content is presented as needed to provide a basis for the understanding of these topics. The laboratory consists of an introduction to scientific methods and obserbation essential to the study of the natural sciences.
Observations are based on data rooted in a material explanation of the natural world. Analysis of data includes an inductive reasoning approach. Three hours lecture and three hours laboratory per week. In this course, students will gain an appreciation of how the natural sciences are essential to the common items of daily life.
As illustrations, students will examine the science behind objects such as wine and cheese, candles, tablecloths, silverware, flowers and MP3 players. This investigation will transform their perspective from end-users to informed individuals.
Lectures will focus on examples of theory and experiment in a range of fields within the natural sciences, and the connection between natural sciences and other areas explored in the General Studies curriculum.
Laboratory work and field trips will be dedicated to investigating the phenomena discussed during lectures using an inquiry-based approach. After exploring some basic biochemistry, explore various food types, such as fruits, vegetables, beer, wine, bread, baked goods, chocolates, candy, meat, milk, cheese, eggs and custards.
Students will implement experiments with food aimed at exploring questions and testing hypotheses to develop their critical thinking skills. Students will need access to a kitchen with some basic cooking equipment and will purchase food for the laboratory component.
CHE Introduction An analysis of the descriptive chemistry principles Forensic Science This course is designed for student observation and comprehension of the basic physical and biological sciences and their influence within forensic science.
Topic selection is based on the most frequently encountered scenarios for practicing forensic scientists. The laboratory consists of an introduction to scientific observation and experimentation and some of the basic operations used during investigations in applied forensics.
CHE Physical Science This course introduces students to phenomena in the physical world and helps them understand the relationships that govern these phenomena within the Natural Sciences. Topics include the structure of matter, chemical bonds and reactions, laws of motion and gravity, electromagnetism, and the study of heat, sound and light.
CHE General Analytical Chemistry I This course is an intensive study of the main concepts of chemistry, and covers qualitative and quantitative descriptions of matter and reactivity. The description of matter includes the atomic and subatomic scale atomic structure, bonding, geometry and intermolecular forces and the macroscopic scale phases of matter and solutions.
Reactivity topics include basic patterns of reactivity, reaction stoichiometry and thermochemistry.
Both conceptual learning and quantitative problem solving are emphasized. The laboratory program consists of an introduction to scientific methods and observation specifically involving inorganic synthesis and qualitative analysis. Four hours lecture and four hours laboratory per week. This course satisfies the General Studies Foundations-Natural Science requirement typically for students planning to major in chemistry, biochemistry, biology or a related field.
Facility with algebra is assumed. Within these topics, acid-base proton transfer equilibrium chemistry, electrochemistry electron transfer equilibrium and solubility solid-ion equilibrium are discussed. The introduction to inorganic chemistry includes descriptive chemistry of metals and nonmetals, coordination chemistry, nuclear chemistry and environmental chemistry.
The laboratory program focuses on quantitative analysis with an introduction to the use of chemical instrumentation.
CHE The Department strongly recommends a C- or better in the prerequisite course CHE Health, Safety and Asset Protection This course is a survey of industrial and academic workplace safety as well as home safety, with a focus on increasing awareness concerning hazardous situations.
The legal, economic and environmental impact of accidents is considered. Topics include requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHAEnvironmental Protection Agency EPA and Americans with Disabilities Act ADA legislation; Worker Right-to-Know laws; individual and corporate responsibility; emergency planning and preparedness; chemical, electrical, mechanical, biological, blood-borne pathogen, radioactive material and fire related safety; materials storage, waste disposal and proper labeling; Material Safety Data Sheets; and laboratory safety in industrial and academic settings.
Current and historical events related to these topics are discussed.

The use of general descriptive names, registered names, trademarks, etc. in this publication does not imp spectrometries, electro analysis) or methods - not even of ionic equilibria, improperly deemed by some "the fundamentals of analysis". Rather, it deals. Qualitative analysis is used to identify and separate cations and anions in a sample substance. Unlike quantitative analysis, which seeks to determine the quantity or amount of sample, qualitative analysis is a descriptive form of analysis. In an educational setting, the concentrations of the ions to be identified are approximately M in an aqueous solution. Basic principles of qualitative analysis. Add Remove.

The course includes visits to local industries to meet with professional safety officers transportation is included and to survey the practice of industrial hygiene. CHE or permission of instructor CHE Organic Chemistry I This course studies the chemistry of carbon and other nonmetals including hydrogen, boron, nitrogen, phosphorous, oxygen, sulfur and the halogens as grouped into characteristic classes of organic compounds.
Topics include the structure, bonding, physical properties and reactivity of covalent and ionic molecules as well as organometallic species. Laboratory work is devoted to the synthesis and characterization of organic compounds, the study of molecular modeling and the study of reaction kinetics and thermodynamics.
Emphasis is placed on proper laboratory technique; experiment design; and laboratory data collection, reporting and interpretation. Three hours of lecture, one hour of conference group, and four hours of laboratory per week.
CHE CHE Organic Chemistry II A continuation of Organic Chemistry I, this course utilizes the foundations established in that course for the study of the chemistry of organic molecules including their physical and chemical properties; synthesis and characteristic reactions; and identification by chemical and spectroscopic analysis.
Topics are organized by functional group an atom or group of atoms in a molecule that exhibit a characteristic set of physical and chemical properties and are considered in the context of organic synthesis as well as biological, economic and environmental import.
