Professor: Rynd Associate Professor: Lin OBJECTIVES
105 General Chemistry I (4) Principles and theories of the struc ture and properties of matter includ ing atomic theory, stoichemistry, mol ecular structure, bonding and state of matter. Prerequisite : high school chemistry, intermediate algebra. Fall
Biochemistry is the study of the chem istry of living systems. This interdisciplinary program draws upon biow/!J and chemistry. OBJECTIVES The major is designed especially for those students planning a career in the health professions. The require ments for schools of medicine , phar macy, den tistry and medical technology are met within this major. This pro gram also prepares one for graduate school in a variety of bioscience pro grams. There are excellent opportuni ties for careers in biotechnical, pharma ceutical and environmental related businesses and governmental agencies.

While primarily providing service courses for other programs, the depart ment does offer two programs with chemistry as the major component. These are Biochemi stry and Physical Science with a chemistry emphasis. Sin ce chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it undergoes, sequences of courses are designed to meet the needs of students as they prepare for a variety of differ ent majors that require an understanding of the nature of matter. The objective of these courses is to provide the stu dent with a basic understanding of the laws of theories of chemistry such that the student will be able ( 1) to explain the basic phys ical and chemical prop erties of matter in terms of its struc ture, (2) to do quantitative problem solving, (3) to gain some level of pro ficiency in laboratory methodology, and ( 4) to be acquainted with basic resource material in chemistry. DEGREE PROGRAM A Bachelor of Science Degree in Physi cal Science with a Chemistry Emphasis is offered. The requirements for this major are given under the Physical Science Department. The Biochem istry Program is given below. MINOR A Chemistry Minor requires the com pletion of the following courses: Chem istry 105, 106, 301, 302, 350. Six distinct chemistry minor units apart from any other major or minor.
