Topics include general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biological chemistry as they apply to chemistry of the human body. This course satisfies the requirements of those health-career programs which require one semester of chemistry. Students who had chemistry in high school and retained some it are advised to take CHEM 309. Students who have not taken a chemistry course recently or have never taken a chemistry course are advised to take the CHEM 305 & 306 sequence. Students enrolled in CHEM 309 are strongly encouraged to co-enroll in CHEM 311.
