Advanced research mentored by a Chemistry Department faculty member. Chemical research with a faculty member outside the Chemistry Department may be allowed with prior approval. At the end of the semester, the mentor will chair a faculty committee to evaluate an oral presentation by the student, and a letter grade will be assigned. A concise written report may also be requested by the mentor or committee in addition to the oral examination. Before registration can be allowed, the student must fill out the Chem 495 Application Form, available on the Chemistry Department website, and submit it to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Prof. John Bleeke. This form, which is required for all Chem 495 registrants, includes a short description of the proposed research and a list of the committee members. This course may provide a Capstone Experience but does not fulfill the Writing Intensive requirement. The units earned may be applied as elective advanced credits towards a Chemistry major with Latin honors eligibility. Course may be taken only once for credit. Prerequisite: Chem 490 and/or other advanced electives or research experience as specified by the mentor.
