Intended to satisfy the chemistry admission requirement for NHTI health-related degree and certificate programs. Consideration will be given to fundamental atomic theory, chemical arithmetic, kinetic theory, solution chemistry, acids, bases and salts, and introductory organic chemistry. Lab included. Proficiency with the mathematical operations of high school Algebra I or MATH 092C strongly recommended. (For institutional credit only; does not count toward graduation requirements but is calculated into GPA; not intended for transfer.)
Fundamental laws and concepts of chemistry, including elements, atomic structure, the periodic table, chemical bonding, compounds, chemical equations, and stoichiometry. Laboratories reinforce concepts presented in lectures and develop skills in scientific thought and common procedures used in chemical experimentation. With CHEM 104C, intended to provide a foundation for further study in life sciences and physical sciences.
Fundamental laws and concepts of chemistry, including elements, atomic structure, the periodic table, chemical bonding, compounds, chemical equations, and stoichiometry.

With CHEM 103C, intended to provide a foundation for further study in life sciences and physical sciences.
Introductory and cursory course in which the fundamental principles of chemistry are developed. Included are topics in atomic structure, chemical bonding, electronic configuration, the Periodic Table, stoichiometry, solutions, gases, and acid-base chemistry. Appropriate lab experiments will complement the lectures. This course is not meant as a substitute for either CHEM 103C or CHEM 104C. High school chemistry with lab strongly recommended.
Designed to provide Allied Health students with the basic principles of the chemistry of living processes. Includes the study of macromolecules, metabolic pathways, energy transformations, and enzyme action.
Explores the most basic and more complex chemical reactions that take place during the production of beer, as well as discusses the microbiology and how it impacts the brewing process from beginning to end. Reactions that affect each stage of the process are discussed as well as the mechanisms that are utilized to control the properties of the finished product. There is also a focus on the importance of hygiene throughout the brewing process. Students taking this class must be at least 21 years of age. A valid ID must be presented to the instructor at the first class for confirmation.
An overview of the multidisciplinary field of the forensic sciences. This course combines classroom lecture and lab analysis of samples from hypothetical criminal investigations to demonstrate the role of science and the forensic scientist in the criminal justice system.
Designed for students who need an introductory chemistry course that covers the fundamentals across inorganic, organic, and biological chemistry. This course focuses on the chemistry and chemical processes that operate in living systems. Topics will include physical and chemical properties of matter, chemical bonding, solutions, acids and bases, the properties and naming of organic compounds, metabolic pathways, and energy production. Appropriate lab experiments will complement the lectures.
An introduction to the nomenclature, structure, and reactions of organic compounds.
