CHEM - Chemistry

CHEM104 (5 credits)
Introductory Chemistry
Designed for allied health or non-science majors and those who do not intend to be chemists or biologists. Introduces the essence of atoms and molecules, chemical bonds, chemical reactions, gases, acids, and bases. Prepares students for work in a laboratory that uses chemicals. Also helps students understand how cells and organisms function. Students must enroll in lecture, laboratory and recitation sections. All three sections are required for this 5-credit class. Prerequisite: MTH65 or MTH63 or designated placement score.

CHEM280 (variable credits)
CWE/Chemistry
Cooperative Work Experience is an educational program that enables students to receive academic credit for on-the-job, experiential learning based on skills acquired in their programs. Together, the instructor, employer, and student establish learning objectives that specify the significant and appropriate learning which is expected to result from the work experience. This course offers a career-related experience for students working for an approved employer. As a capstone course, it should be completed within the last two terms of a certificate or degree program. Prerequisite: CWE courses require prior arrangements with faculty or the Department
