Featuchemistry: Proteins and Metabolism A fundamental course surveying biomolecres presentation, discussion, analysis and critique of original research.Prerequisite: permission of instructor. (1/4 credit; non-yearly, consult department)
CHE433WI - Introductory Physical Chemistry
(4 credits; alternate years, consult department)(Writing intensive) An introductory course in chemical thermodynamics, quantum chemistry and chemical kinetics. Note: Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory period per week.Prerequisites: MAT112QR and MAT211; and CHE112 or PHY212.Cross-referenced in physics.
CHE436 - Intermediate Physical Chemistry
An intermediate course in chemical thermodynamics, quantum chemistry, and chemical kinetics.Prerequisite: CHE433x.(4 credits; alternate years, consult department)
CHE450SR - Science and the Christian Faith
Science and Christian Faith is a senior seminar course designed for biologyand chemistry majors. The course revisits the three FYS course questions:Who am I? Who are my neighbors? How will we live in the world? Ourthoughtful examination of these three questions will draw on knowledgegained from your biology and chemistry courses, but also integrates broadlywith your liberal arts education (religion, philosophy, etc.) as we explorequestions of origins, creation care, and bioethics and through the lens ofChristian faith and theology. The readings, written assignments, oralpresentations, and discussions will lead us to consider how God calls us, asscientists and people of faith, to be agents of redemption in our world.Prerequisites: senior biology or chemistry major. Junior biology orchemistry majors who cannot take this course during their senior year mayrequest permission from their advisor who will consult with the departmentchairs to register. (3 credits) (Cross-referenced in biology)
