Chem 130, which is one of the required introductory core courses for the chemistry major and the biochemistry major, provides an introduction to the structure and properties of inorganic compounds. Other courses in the introductory core provide introductions to the structure and function of organic molecules (Chem 120), to basic stoichiometric calcuations (Chem 170), to the structure and function of biomolecules (Chem 240), and to the key theortical principles and experimental approaches that guide our exploration of chemistry and of biochemistry (Chem 260). Together, these courses provided a solid foundation for advanced work in chemisty and biochemistry, a solid preparation for those pursuing careers in STEM-related disciplines.
