Course descriptions from the 2016-2017 Catalog.

CHEM 100 Chemistry and Man (3)

Brief introduction to basic principles of chemistry and their relationship to the modern world. This course provides a general education core course for the non-science major. Emphasis will be placed on how science and technology affect the individual, society and the environment. Topics to be treated include: air and water pollution, energy resources, and basics of biochemistry. (DP)

Prerequisite: MATH 82 with a grade of CR or C or better or equivalent.Rec Prep: Concurrent registration in CHEM 100L.

CHEM 100L Chemistry and Man Laboratory (1)

Introduction to laboratory techniques and experimental methods of chemistry intended for students preparing for careers in non-science fields. (DY)

Prerequisite: CHEM 100 with a grade of C or better or concurrent registration

CHEM 151 Elementary Survey of Chemistry (3)

An introductory course to the fundamental theories and experimental methods of chemistry intended for students preparing for careers in medical technology, nursing, life sciences, and other technical fields. The basic language and quantitative relationships of chemistry are studied, as well as the theories of atomic structure, chemical bonding, structure-property relationships, and chemical reactions. Class meets for 3 hours of lecture. (DP)
