List of Courses

CHE 121 Introductory Chemistry (3 credits)

CHE 121 is designed as an introductory chemistry course for non-science majors and would also meet the needs of students who have little or no background in chemistry. CHE 121 is a course that would provide the basic chemistry background necessary to continue on to General Chemistry I (CHE 171). This course is not recommended for Health Science students and will not count toward the Math Science degree (MTS.AS). Students are strongly encouraged to co-register for MAT 114 if they intend to continue on to CHE 171. Prerequisite: MAT 087 or MAT 088, and placement into college level reading. An optional laboratory is offered for this course, CHE 121L, which may be taken concurrent with, or after completion of, CHE 121.

CHE 121L Introductory Chemistry Laboratory (1 credits)

Laboratory for CHE 121. Illustrative experiments emphasizing the concepts, principles, and techniques presented in CHE 121. Prerequisite: MAT 087 and placement in college level reading; prerequisite/co-requisite: CHE 121.

CHE 121R Introductory Chemistry Recitation (1EQ credits)

Optional recitation section for CHE 121. Provides the opportunity for students to apply the theories, concepts and problem-solving techniques presented in CHE 121. Prerequisite: MAT 087 and placement into college level reading; co-requisite: CHE 121.

CHE 151 Basic Chemistry for the Health Sciences I (3 credits)
