Representative Course Syllabi

Representative syllabi for many undergraduate level Chemistry courses offered at Hunter College are available by clicking on the course number/name below.

The topics and the scope of coverage are generally consistent between different instructors of the same course. Chemistry courses offered at Hunter College in the Summer semester maintain the same rigor in topics and scope of coverage as their Fall and Spring semester counterparts.

With the general exception of laboratory courses, instructors may establish their own course/grading policies and adjust the sequence of topics as they see fit. Textbooks and course materials (including any online learning platform(s) that may be used) are subject to change. (Prospective students are advised to independently verify BEFORE purchasing access codes/textbooks/etc. listed on the representative syllabi)
