New Discovery Learning Course for Incoming Transfer Students
Offered Beginning in Fall 2022
Beginning in Fall 2022, the College of Chemistry (CoC) will offer a new one-credit, seminar-style course exclusively for incoming transfer students, Chem 102: Foundations of Discovery Learning for College of Chemistry Transfer Students.
Students who enroll in this course will be guided to develop and engage in discovery learning experiences, such as undergraduate research, industrial internships, K-12 educational outreach, or STEM entrepreneurial pursuits. These experiences help link chemistry content to real-world situations and push students to engage in high levels of thinking.
This course is also designed to assist students with their transition into the CoC through:
- discussions around best learning and study practices, stress management, CoC coursework, and careers
- interactions with the CoC community, including personalized mentorship from transfer peers, graduate students, and faculty
Students will continue to receive mentorship and support from the course instructor during the spring semester following their completion of Chem 102.
