Chemistry 395: Independent Work in Chemistry
Course Description: May be repeated to a maximum of nine credits. Prereq: Major and a standing of 3.0 in the department.
Typically, a student will pursue independent study by performing a research project in the laboratory of one of the professors in the department. Six credits of CHE 395 are recommended for students having a minimum 3.0 GPA in chemistry courses. Oral and written reports
are required for CHE 395 students during their final semester of registration in CHE
395; progress reports are required at the end of previous semester(s). Students not taking CHE 395 must substitute six credits of 300-level or higher courses in science, mathematics, or engineering, as approved by the Academic Matters Committee of the Department of Chemistry.
A student wishing to take CHE 395 should first peruse the research programs of the UK
chemistry faculty and choose a faculty member with whom she would like to work. The student should then
make an appointment with the faculty member to discuss possible research projects and expectations. If
both parties are amenable, a research contract must be signed by
both student and faculty member and returned to the Director of Undergraduate
Studies, Dr. Carolyn Brock, at the beginning of the first semester. If this
contract is not signed and returned, the student will be dropped from the course.
For more information about CHE 395, please consult your advisor or Dr. Brock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
