    Prerequisites:  MAT 109 or MAT 110, and CHM 100 (or completion of high school chemistry with a grade of "C" or higher)
    This is the first course in a sequence which includes the following topics:  atomic and molecular structure, nomenclature and equations, properties, reactions and states of matter, stoichiometry, gas laws, solutions, equilibria, and nuclear chemistry.

    CHM 111  College Chemistry II  (3-3-4)*
    Offered Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters
    Prerequisite:  CHM 110
    This course is a continuation of the study of atomic and molecular structure, nomenclature and equations, properties, reactions and states of matter, stoichiometry, gas laws, solutions, and equilibria.  Other topics included are kinetics, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, inorganic chemistry and an introduction to organic chemistry.

    CHM 211  Organic Chemistry I  (3-3-4)*
    Offered Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters
    Prerequisite:  CHM 111
    This is the first in a sequence of courses that includes nomenclature, structure and properties, and reaction mechanisms of basic organic chemistry.

    CHM 212  Organic Chemistry II  (3-3-4)*
    Offered  Spring and Summer Semesters
    Prerequisite:  CHM 211
    This course is a continuation of basic organic chemistry.  Topics include nomenclature, structure and properties, reaction mechanisms of basic organic chemistry, biochemistry and spectroscopy.

    CHM 213  Principles of Biochemistry  (3-0-3)
    Offered Spring Semester
    Prerequisite:  CHM 211 or CHM 105
    This course is the study of the major biochemical processes, including those related to proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids, DNA replication and transcription, carbohydrates, lipids and their associated pathways and significance.

    CHM 299  Research in Chemistry  (0-9-3)
    Offered Fall, Spring, and Summer Semesters
    Prerequisite:  Permission of Instructor
    This course provides an opportunity for students to investigate a faculty-approved topic related to Chemistry using the application of practical research methods. This course is designed for students in an Associate of Arts or Associate of Sciences program to explore part of their major in more depth by working one-on-one or in small groups on faculty- or student-designed research projects.
