CHEM 396W - Chemical Literacy


2 credit(s)
Introduces students to the primary and secondary chemical literature in order to develop the writing composition, discipline-specific research, and critical-analytical skills necessary to complete their senior capstone project. As such, it is normally taken by students in the spring of their junior year and is a prerequisite of the capstone courses. Students wishing to travel abroad that semester will need to consult with the department to arrange an alternative. Students practice researching, reading, and evaluating academic journal articles and others venues for dissemination in the field. They also compose and revise a variety of field-specific genres in scientific communication, including graphical presentation of data. In this context, students will be instructed in ethics and pathways beyond Pacific.
Core Requirement(s): Counts toward core requirement: Writing in the Discipline.
