CHEM 106

Chemistry in the Community

This is an introductory chemistry course for non-science majors with a focus on green chemistry. The course is designed to teach students the principles of green chemistry and the importance of sustainability. We will consider issues that reflect today’s headlines such as ozone depletion, global warming, new energy sources, nutrition, genetic engineering and other topics that are connected to chemistry. The course will prepare students to respond in a thoughtful manner to these socially important issues and help them to become well-informed citizens. This lecture/lab course fulfills the CORE B2 science requirement for non-science majors.
