Prerequisite: CHEM 381 or CHEM 382, which may be taken concurrently; and completion of the Spoken Communication (CSPK) core curriculum requirement; or consent of department chairperson
This course is part of a two-semester capstone sequence for senior chemistry majors in oral/written scientific communication. Students will attend weekly public seminars to explore current topics in the chemical sciences that require the assimilation of knowledge from prior course work. Seminar topics will include talks by BSU research students, department faculty, and invited speakers from outside the chemistry department. With a focus on oral communication skills, this course will provide an introduction to the techniques and style of technical oral presentation generally accepted by professional chemists. Offered fall semester.
