Course Listing

Displaying fall and spring courses only.

Due to the University's move to Blackboard™, much of the course information that was once available online via course webpages is outdated or has been removed. Therefore, the Department of Chemistry has chosen to provide more specific course descriptions to supplement the information given by the University registrar. If you would still like more information about a particular course, please feel free to contact the instructor assigned to teach that course.

Note to undegraduates: You may register for courses listed as graduate courses, but some courses require that you get written permission of the instructor in order to do so.
