[1] CHEM 304 and CHEM 310 have been restructured as of fall 2012. CHEM 304 has been reduced from 4 credits to 2 credits, and the lab sections are now 3 hours instead of 5 hours long. CHEM 310 lecture is now a co-requisite. Students who have completed neither must add both courses to the SIS shopping cart in order to enroll.

[2] CHEM 305, CHEM 306, and CHEM 332 are approved departmental seminar courses. Chemistry and Chemical Biology majors do not have to take any other courses to fulfill the departmental seminar SAGES requirement.
