Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers two courses for research credits, CHM 4910L (Undergraduate Research in Chemistry) and CHM 4911L (Undergraduate Research 2). Undergraduate students in the BS in Chemistry program are required to take one semester of CHM 4910L. Although not required to, Chemistry BA students are welcome and strongly encouraged to do so as well. Students are responsible for searching the faculty page to find a professor whose research interests or projects match their own. In CHM 4910L the student works directly with a professor on a research project. Credit is assigned based on 4 hr/wk laboratory/library work per credit hour. A written report is required and must be submitted to the Undergraduate Research Committee for approval. Students may take CHM 4911L, Undergraduate Research 2 (1-20 credits) for further research opportunities. In some cases, students work as members of a research team whose work will eventually lead to journal publication.
