CHEM-T 540 Physical Chemistry (Graduate)

CHEM-T540 is a graduate level course that will touch on all the fundamental areas of Physical Chemistry (kinetics, thermodynamics, equilibrium, quantum). Knowing that one course cannot sufficiently cover all the areas of physical chemistry in one semester, focus and emphasis is on content that expands the students’ knowledge in these key areas beyond what is expected at undergraduate level, and relates to concepts that are likely to be taught in high school and introductory chemistry courses. A key aspect will be to develop students’ understanding of advanced physical chemistry concepts and ability to apply this knowledge towards fundamental chemistry concepts and problems through quantitative problem solving, discussions and presentations.

Prerequisite: Strong undergraduate background in chemistry & a license to teach high school chemistry.
