CHEM 101 Fundamental Chemistry 1
A science elective surveying inorganic and solution chemistry. It is the first of a terminal two-semester sequence (CHEM 101 and 102). The course meets for three lecture, one recitation, and two laboratory hours per week. There are no pre-requisites for this course.
Dr. Johnson assists a student with an experiment
CHEM 105 Chemistry and Modern Society with Lab
A conceptual and qualitative approach to chemistry, its evolution, achievements, and goals and its impact on technology, the environment, and modern life and thought. (Specifically designed for non-science majors.)
CHEM 107 Forensic Chemistry with Lab
This 4 credit hour course surveys the chemical aspects of criminal investigation and adjudication including drug, arson, DNA, paint, and fiber identification. Three lecture and three laboratory hours per week. (For non-science majors)
CHEM 111 General Chemistry I with Lab
CHEM 111 General Chemistry I with Lab
This is a four-credit hour laboratory science course that surveys the principles underlying all of chemistry with applications illustrating these principles.  It is primarily intended for students majoring in chemistry, biology, engineering, and pre-professional fields and requires a pre-requisite of Math 111 or Math 115. 
CHEM 112 General Chemistry II with Lab
This four-credit hour laboratory science course is a continuation of CHEM 111, surveying the principles underlying all of chemistry with special emphasis on chemical equilibrium, kinetics, and qualitative inorganic analysis. It is primarily intended for students majoring in chemistry, biology, engineering, and pre-professional fields and requires a pre-requisite of Chem 111. 

CHEM 321 Quantitative Analysis Lecture
This three credit hour course covers gravimetric, volumetric, and introductory instrumental analysis. It meets for three lecture hours per week.

CHEM 321L Quantitative Analysis Lab
This one credit hour laboratory course accompanies the Chem321 lecture, but the grading and credits are independent. It meets for three laboratory hours per week.
CHEM 331L Essentials of Organic Chemistry Laboratory I
This one credit hour laboratory course includes laboratory safety, syntheses, separation, and purification of carbon compounds. It is designed for students majoring in biology and pre-professional fields. The pre-requisite for this course is CHEM 112 and it is typically taken with CHEM 333 lecture.
CHEM 333 Organic Chemistry I
This three credit hour lecture course is designed for students majoring in chemistry, biology, and pre-professional fields. It includes the contemporary theories, nomenclature, reactions, mechanisms, and syntheses of carbon compounds. The course pre-requisite is CHEM 112.
