Electives

Two courses, or one course with a lab, from the list below following the sorting mechanism described.

If a student takes S42, he or she must take at least one elective from the following list:

  • 223 (analytical spectroscopy)
  • S37 (advanced measurement lab)
  • 321 (biochemistry)
  • 310 or 302 (biophysical chemistry or statistical thermodynamics whichever one was not┬átaken to fulfill the major)
  • 316 (advanced inorganic chemistry)
  • 313 spectral interpretation.

If a student takes S37, he or she must take at least one elective from the following list

  • S42 synthesis and chemical reactivity short term
  • 223 analytical spectroscopy
  • 325 advanced organic chemistry
  • 321 biochemistry
  • 313 spectral interpretation
  • 316 advanced inorganic chemistry

Students may not take any course pass/fail that is counted towards the major.
