Course Modules

Physical Chemistry
Chemistry 301 Majors who are candidates for an AB degree with or without any concentration generally take Chem 301 in the fall of the junior year followed by its laboratory, Chem 301L, in the spring semester of the junior year.
Chemistry 310 Majors who are candidates for a BS degree with or without any concentration must take two semesters of physical chemistry. A candidate for the ACS-certified BS degree generally takes Chem 310/310L in the fall semester of their junior year followed by 311/311L in the spring semester of their junior year. BS candidates in any concentration may take either 310/310L in the fall semester of their junior year followed by 311 in the spring semester of their junior year; or Chem 301 in the fall semester of their junior year followed by Chem 301L and Chem 302, Biophysical Chemistry, in the spring semester of their junior year.
Analytical Chemistry Chem 401 is usually taken fall of the senior year and Chem 401L, the laboratory course associated with Chem 401, may be taken either fall of the senior year or spring semester of the senior year.
Independent Study
Chemistry 393 Available any semester. Majors who wish to begin independent study should consult the Guide to Chemistry Independent Study. Students who want to start Independent Study this semester should fill out the form for independent study. You should turn in the completed form to Dr. Roy in suite 1219, room 1222 FFSC. Dr. Roy will provide you with a permission number to add independent study to your ACES schedule. If the project is with a faculty member outside the Chemistry Department, you must obtain from that faculty member the course number, section number, and a permission number for his/her independent study. You then add the independent study using ACES. We also recommend that you also enroll in Chemistry 295, the Introduction to Research Independent Study, which is required for certification of the BS degree and for Graduation with Distinction.
Chemistry 295 Introduction to Independent Study, is offered for all majors who are enrolling in their first semester of independent study in chemistry (Chemistry 393) or a related area. The catalog description for the course follows: Chemistry 295. Introduction to Research Independent Study. NS, W Includes research methodology, retrieval techniques for, and use of, the chemical literature, safety in the research laboratory, and the ethical conduct of research, and writing a research proposal. Co-requisite (if posssible): registration for a first course in research independent study in chemistry (CHEM 393) or a related area.
Chemistry 394, 493, 494 Available any semester. Majors who wish to sign up for a continuing Independent Study course must obtain a permission number. If the project is with a faculty member in the Chemistry Department, Dr. Roy will provide you with a permission number so that you can add the course to your ACES schedule. If the project is with a faculty member outside the Chemistry Department, you must obtain from that faculty member the course number, section number, and a permission number for his/her independent study. You then add the independent study using ACES. Completing Independent Study. All majors who enroll in independent study are required to write a formal report on their research, Research Thesis, and to present a Poster. Requesting Writing Credit (W) for Independent Study. Writing credit (W) may be requested only once and that should be your final semester of independent study when you will write your research thesis. The procedure for W-credit for Independent Study can be found at the Trinity Policies & Procedures site.
Other Advanced Courses
Chemistry 410 inorganic chemistry, is usually taken the spring semester of the senior year.
Chemistry 420L is the advanced laboratory techniques course which is usually taken concurrently with Chem 410 in the spring semester of the senior year.
Chemistry 500-700 are Advanced Studies courses that are open to both advanced undergraduates and graduate students and are usually taken in the senior year.
Biochemistry 301 Historically, during summer session, Term I, the department of Biochemistry offers Biochemistry 301. This is an excellent way to lighten a fall course load for those who need to take both physical chemistry and biochemistry.
Pharmacology Historically PHR 350 has been offered fall semester, while PHR 360 has been offered in spring semester only. In case of scheduling conflicts, other pharmacology courses such as PHR 533 or 554 can be substituted with permission of the DUS.
