CHEM 115C             Brewing: The Science Behind Beer

Explores the most basic and more complex chemical reactions that take place during the production of beer, as well as discusses the microbiology and how it impacts the brewing process from beginning to end. Reactions that affect each stage of the process are discussed as well as the mechanisms that are utilized to control the properties of the finished product. There is also a focus on the importance of hygiene throughout the brewing process. Students taking this class must be at least 21 years of age. A valid ID must be presented to the instructor at the first class for confirmation.

Lecture Hours: 3    Lab/Practicum/Clinical Hours: 2    Credit Hours: 4

 

CHEM 120C             Introduction to Forensic Science

An overview of the multidisciplinary field of the forensic sciences. This course combines classroom lecture and lab analysis of samples from hypothetical criminal investigations to demonstrate the role of science and the forensic scientist in the criminal justice system.
