CHEMISTRY COURSE SCHEDULING PATTERN

Fall = September - December
Winter = January - April
Summer 2 = May - June
Summer 3 = Late June - August

The scheduling pattern for all Chemistry courses is in the table below.  All sections must meet minimum enrollments to run.

Evening Offerings:  Many of our undergraduate courses have a section offered in the evening (starts at 5:30 or later) at least once every two years.  Almost all of our 500-level and 600-level courses are only offered in the evening.

Online Offerings:  The only chemistry course offered in an online format is CHEM 115/116.  It is offered online every term.

Catalog Descriptions:  Follow the catalog links below to see the official catalog description for any course.

  • For undergraduate-level chemistry courses, follow this link.
  • For graduate-level chemistry courses, follow this link.
  • For fermentation science courses, follow this link.
  • Note that Honors sections have the same catalog descriptions as the regular sections.
