^The Instrumental Analysis (CHEM 424) capstone course is designed to draw from and build on content and skills learned during a student’s progression through the major. The course includes both a lecture and laboratory component, with a significant writing component. In undertaking this course, students will demonstrate: a thorough understanding of the relevant chemistry material, an ability to apply problem-solving strategies, expertise in laboratory procedures and instrumentation, written communication skills. Requires prerequisite 300-level Physical Chemistry Courses.
# Biochemistry (CHEM 425) or Biochemistry I CHEM426 must be taken to be certified by the American Chemical Society. If research is not taken as an elective, then CHEM426 should be taken to achieve the required lab hours.
