Research Seminar


*Chemistry majors must complete a research project by taking one of CHM 405 , CHM 410 , CHM 420 , CHM 425 , CHM 495  or BCM 465 , or by participating in a non-credit research program (including off-campus programs). Each student presents the results of this research in the chemistry seminar course, CHM 475 . CHM 475  is taken over three (usually nonconsecutive) terms. During the first two terms the student participates as an observer and questioner and enrolls in CHM 475  for no credit. CHM 190  may be substituted for one of these. During the third term the student gives the research presentation and enrolls in CHM 475  for one credit hour.
