[Chemistry] What advanced elective should I take?

  • #1
As a chemistry major I have to take one advance elective. Unfortunately it’s very difficult to tell which courses will be offered in that semester. I’m hoping inorganic chemistry 2 is offered. Because the last couple of semesters it seems advance organic chemistry was offered.

The problem with organic chemistry is ther is my biggest weakness of the field. I don’t want to take it. But at the other side of my heart it wants me to take it. I recently passed organic chemistry 2 with C-. The first test wasn’t my best, but I gotten better as the course progressed. I also have to take an advance laboratory requirement course. Since I’m better at the lab portion of organic chemistry I’ll be taking Advanced Synthesis Laboratory.

My biggest worried will be what if my last option is to take advance organic chemistry if inorganic chemistry 2 isn’t offered.

Why not talk with profs in the department to see what will be taught? and then decide based on that.

School? Large department? Small? Young faculty? Old?

I won't be taking any advance elective until I complete the physical chemistry sequence. That will be Spring 2020. I will be taking PCHEM in Fall 2019

Almost all electives require PCHEM
