You can build strength in a specific focus area by directing your Program Electives in Year Two and Year Three towards specific courses, as described below (click on a focus area to see the corresponding courses). By doing so, you will be adequately prepared for 400-level courses in those areas. If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies in Chemistry, you should build strength in at least two focus areas.

Chemistry (CHEM 400) and Biochemistry (CHEM 430) special topics

Since many of the 400-level Special Topics courses are not given on an annual basis, the Department of Chemistry is maintaining a terms of offering table below, in order to aid you in planning your course selections for Years Three and Four of your academic program.

Naturally, any course may be subject to cancellation should there be too few students interested in taking it during the term in which it has been scheduled to be offered.
