Chemical Sciences - Rockville

Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at Rockville !

The Department of Chemistry at the Rockville Campus offers a number of different Chemistry courses to meet your various requirements. If you only need a basic science course, with or without the laboratory, look into our Chemistry and Society course CHEM 109. If you have not had Chemistry before, or had it a long time ago, you might want to consider taking Introduction to Chemistry before moving on to the General Chemistry courses.  Depending on the engineering field you intend to major in, you may want to consider the accelerated General Chemistry for Engineers class, CHEM 135.  For those people needing additional chemistry, we also offer two semesters of Organic Chemistry CHEM 203/204.  

You are more than welcome to stop by my office to discuss your academic goals.
