A continuation of CHM L552 with an introduction to methods and techniques in computational chemistry and spectroscopy. Co-requisite or prerequisite: CHM 5553

CHM 6625 6626 6627 

Specialized Study in Area of Chemistry (1-4)

 

A study of a problem or problems using research techniques. Selection of problem must be approved by the professor under whom the study is to be made and the Dean of Arts and Sciences. The study should contribute to the student’s program. Preparation of a scholarly paper is required and may involve oral defense. Total credit for any combination of enrollments in these courses may not exceed four semester hours. A Specialized Study may be substituted for a required course only once in a student’s program. See semester hour limits listed under Course Restrictions in General Regulations section.
