General Chemistry

General Chemistry I (CHEM111) and II (CHEM112) cover the fundamental concepts and theories of chemistry required for advanced study in the sciences.  Laboratories reinforce theory with practical exercises and develop essential technical skills.  Click on this link for specific course objectives and the topics covered in each course.

Students wishing to enroll in CHEM111 must first take the Chemistry Placement Test.  Depending on your test score, either CHEM111 or Foundations of Chemistry (CHEM101) would be the recommended introductory course.  Syllabi for the courses taught by individual instructors are available below.
