This course consolidates the knowledge of chemistry acquired through coursework and provides a bridge to students' post-graduation experience. Students will explore current trends in the field through discussion with peers, written assignments, and oral presentations. Familiarity with chemical research literature and real-world applications of chemistry will be a major focus of the course. Performance will be evaluated based on quality of participation, assignments, and one major presentation. Through reading and discussion, students will not only learn of potential career applications of the Meredith experience, but also prepare to effectively communicate in the professional arena. May be taken for credit more than one semester.
