Prerequisite: CM-UY 2514 or CM-UY 2614. - CM-GY 5011 (Please refer to the bulletin)

HuSS Elective

*Fall Semester*

- 4 Credits Undergrad Research in Chemistry CM-UY 4914
- In this course, students conduct original investigations guided by staff members. Careful literature research is required before laboratory work starts. Continued reference to chemical literature is expected as well as active participation in conferences and seminars, both of which are scheduled as work progresses. A written report is required. Fulltime students are expected to register for 8 credits of thesis during senior year. A research (lab) fee is required.

Prerequisites: CM-GY 5011 and CM-GY 5040.
