CHM200 Introduction to Chemistry 3 Credits
This general chemistry course is designed to serve as a foundation for the student about to
enter the study of allied health sciences. Topics covered include chemistry and measurement,
energy and matter, atoms and elements, nuclear chemistry, compounds and bonding,
chemical reactions, gases and solutions, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases.
Co-requisite: CHM200L
Prerequisite: MTH105
Terms Offered: SP

CHM200L Introduction to Chemistry Lab* 1 Credit
This course is the practical laboratory application of the concepts learned in CHM200,
Introduction to Chemistry. Topics applied in this course include chemistry and measurement,
energy and matter, atoms and elements, nuclear chemistry, compounds and bonding,
chemical reactions, gases and solutions, chemical equilibrium, acids and bases.
Co-requisite: CHM200
Prerequisite: MTH105

CHM310 Organic Chemistry* 3 Credits
This course is a one-term organic chemistry course in which students are introduced to
the fundamentals of organic chemistry. Emphasis is placed on the structure, properties,
synthesis, reactions and simple mechanisms of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols,
ethers, aldehydes, ketones, amines, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, and biologically
important molecules.
Co-requisite: CHM310L
Prerequisites: CHM200 and CHM200L
Terms Offered: SU

CHM310L Organic Chemistry Lab* 1 Credit
This course is the practical laboratory application of the concepts learned in CHM310, Organic
Chemistry. Emphasis is placed on the structure, properties, synthesis, reactions and simple
mechanisms of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ethers, aldehydes, ketones,
amines, carboxylic acids and their derivatives, and biologically important molecules.
Co-requisite: CHM310
Prerequisites: CHM200 and CHM200L
Terms Offered: SU

CHM400 Biochemistry* 3 Credits
Biochemistry involves the study of the molecular composition of living cells, the organization
of biological molecules within the cell, and the structure and function of the biological
molecules. The biological macromolecules which are included in this course are proteins,
polysaccharides, and polynucleic acids (DNA and RNA), including monomeric units of these
macromolecules. We will also examine the structure and function of lipids, a fourth important
type of biological molecules and a major component of cell membranes. We will also study
the biological transport in membranes.
