CHM 240/241 Perspectives on the Molecular World

This course introduces chemistry to non-science majors by exploring the chemistry of the molecular world we live in, as well as the impact of chemistry on societal issues.  Topics connecting chemistry to the world, such as synthetic and natural materials, health and nutrition, consumer products and drugs, and nature and the environment will be discussed.  Students in this course will examine the global and societal impact of chemistry through a chemical lens, and will evaluate information and apply the scientific method through experimentation.  The laboratory may include field trips, field studies, or in-lab experiments. 2 lecture hours and 1 three-hour lab.
