Associate Professors : P. Coad, R. Coad Objectives: Upon completion of the chemistry program a student will have demonstrated I) an understanding of the basic concepts of the structure of matter and the changes it undergoes, 2) an ability to do quantitative problem solving, 3) pro­ ficiency in common laboratory methods, and 4) a knowledge of resource material in chemistry. The program is designed to meet the requirements and needs of students goi ng into industry, into profession programs (medicine, engineering, etc.), into graduate school and into education. To satisfy the di­ verse interest and needs a number of course opt ions are available. A core cu r ­ r iculum is required of all majors after which electives with gu idance of an advisor are chosen to meet specific needs. Department Major: Requires 22 units of supportive courses, 30 units of core chem­ istry courses and 6 units of chemistry relat­ ed electives. Core Courses: Math I05, I 06; Comput­ er Science IOI ; Physics 21 I , 222, 33 I ; Chemistry I05, I06, 30 I , 302, 350, 402, 403, 404, 450. Recommend electives for those inter­ ested in: Pre-medicine/biochemistry: Chemist ry 41 I , 4 12, Biology I I I, 272, 3 I 2 Industrial: Physics 321, 322; Chemistry 480 Education: Physical Science 250; Geology 103 Graduate School : Chemistry 420; Physics 321, 332 Department Minor: Chemistry I 05, I06, 30 I , 302, 350 or 402. Chemistry majors automatically meet the general education requirement of eight units of science and mathematics. The lan­ guage requirement is the minimum of two years in high school o r one semester in college
