Classes of 2017 and Later

Any course offered by the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at the 4000 level or higher may be used as an elective. Some options are listed below, and a complete listing can be found under CHEM in the online course catalog. Students who have completed the core courses are encouraged to take graduate courses at the 6000 or 7000 level in areas of interest. No more than four credits of independent research (CHEM 4210, CHEM 4330, CHEM 4610 or CHEM 4770) may be counted as an elective.
