Course Descriptions

General chemistry is a sequence of four courses — two lectures and two labs, taken over two semesters — designed to provide an overview of the discipline and serve as a stepping stone to further study in chemistry and other science majors.

General Chemistry I, CHM 1310G, and General Chemistry Lab I, CHM 1315G, are taken together in the first semester. General Chemistry II, CHM 1410, and General Chemistry Lab II, CHM 1415, are taken together in the second (and hopefully, succeeding) semester.
