Compulsory courses You must choose 4 credits from this list . If the times for the courses 76628 and 76634 clash with a student's timetable in the second semester, the course 76637 can be taken as an alternative. Courses 76628 and 76636 can be taken up to and including the second year of studies. For Chemistry students double majoring in Earth Sciences, courses 76625 and 76608 may be substituted for courses 76634 and 76628. For Life Sciences students double majoring in Earth Sciences, courses 76631 and 76632 may be substituted for courses 76628 and 76634. For Computer Sciences students double majoring in Earth Sciences, this cluster of courses is elective, not required. Computer Sciences students who decide not to take courses listed in this cluster of courses do not have to make up the credits.

There are 9 full sessions in this lab course: with an introduction to the lab and its methods, and 8 experiments in general chemistry. Some additional shorter sessions may be necessary (usually amounting to 2 full sessions). Sessions take place once a week throughout the semester, to allow a convenient interval between experiments. The first session will take place in the first week of the semester, in the lecture hall of the new laboratory building (Brandman 017). At the first session, students must present confirmation that they have performed the safety test. Note: the Interactive Safety Tutorial (76222) is a prerequisite for this lab. Students must complete the above course before the lab begins. Students must attend each session wearing closed shoes, clothing that covers their arms and legs, a full-length lab coat, and standard-compliant safety goggles. The three lab groups are identical in content, but for convenience of the students an effort will be made to form the groups by academic program. According to the plan, Lab 1 has been assigned to medicine science students and others, Lab 2 for chemistry and biology students and others, and Lab 3 for earth science students and others. This may change depending on the groups’ annual schedules. Chemistry students are welcome in any of these lab groups. Note: Please enroll in the lab as soon as the registration system opens at the beginning of the year; this will make it possible for us to be appropriately prepared for the number of participants. Note: You must enroll in the lab in the year for which it is defined as compulsory for you. The Chemistry Department will not guarantee the place of students who do not take the lab in the appropriate year for their academic program. If you have a postponement permission document, present it to the Chemistry Department.
