Online Organic Chemistry II

Online Distance Organic Chemistry II is a one semester course with a virtual laboratory designed for individuals with a baccalaureate degree who need second semester organic chemistry as a prerequisite to apply for admission to health professions' programs. These may include graduate programs in medicine, veterinary medicine, dental medicine, nursing, physical therapy, and physician assistant.

The goals of this course are divided into two major topics: The first goal is to introduce the student to important laboratory techniques and concepts covered on most professional entrance exams. These include separation and purification techniques and an introductory to spectroscopy. This will make up the first 6 modules of the course and will include one laboratory assignment.

The second goal is to give the student interested in the health professions an introduction to the organic chemistry of important biological pathways that the student will encounter in his/her professional studies. The subjects include biochemistry, molecular genetics, and metabolism. This will make up the remaining 8 modules and will include 7 laboratory assignments.

Since this is the second of two semesters in this series, it will be assumed that the student taking this course has a good understanding of the different functional groups in organic chemistry and of the different reactions these functional groups undergo.

The course is designed to take lecture and lab concurrently for four credits. However, you have the option to take lecture only (three credits) or lab only (one credit). You need to specify during registration that you want to take lab only or lecture only, otherwise it will be assumed that you want to take both.

The typical student will complete the course in approximately 16 weeks. Students may enroll at any time.  Many students are nontraditional students who have elected an on-line course for it's flexibility.  Therefore, students may complete the course in less than 16 weeks.  

  Prerequisite(s): Organic Chemistry I (must have been successfully completed within the past 7 years).
