Online Organic Chemistry II

CHEM 1021: Online Organic Chemistry Lecture

UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dars | UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cat­a­log | Tech­ni­cal Require­ments

Online Organ­ic Chem­istry II: CHEM 1021 is a one semes­ter online organ­ic chem­istry course with a vir­tu­al lab­o­ra­to­ry designed for indi­vid­u­als who need a sec­ond semes­ter organ­ic chem­istry course as a pre­req­ui­site to apply for admis­sion to a health pro­fes­sions pro­gram. 

Grad­u­ate pro­grams that may require CHEM 1021 & CHEM 1021L: Organ­ic Chem­istry II & Lab (a sep­a­rate course) may include but are not lim­it­ed to:

  • Med­i­cine
  • Vet­eri­nary med­i­cine
  • Den­tal med­i­cine
  • Nurs­ing
  • Phys­i­cal ther­a­py
  • Physi­cian assis­tant

CHEM 1021 course outline and program goals

The goals of this online organ­ic chem­istry course are divid­ed into two major top­ics: The first goal is to intro­duce the stu­dent to impor­tant lab­o­ra­to­ry tech­niques and con­cepts cov­ered on most pro­fes­sion­al entrance exams. These include sep­a­ra­tion and purifi­ca­tion tech­niques and an intro­duc­to­ry to spec­troscopy. This will make up the first six mod­ules of the course and will include one lab­o­ra­to­ry assign­ment.

The sec­ond goal is to give the stu­dent inter­est­ed in the health pro­fes­sions an intro­duc­tion to the organ­ic chem­istry of impor­tant bio­log­i­cal path­ways that the stu­dent will encounter in their pro­fes­sion­al stud­ies. The sub­jects include bio­chem­istry, mol­e­c­u­lar genet­ics, and metab­o­lism. This will make up the remain­ing eight mod­ules and will include sev­en lab­o­ra­to­ry assign­ments. Click here for the syl­labus for online CHEM 1021.

Since this is the sec­ond of two semes­ters in this series, it will be assumed that the stu­dent tak­ing this course has a good under­stand­ing of the dif­fer­ent func­tion­al groups in organ­ic chem­istry and of the dif­fer­ent reac­tions these func­tion­al groups under­go.

If you need the corresponding Lab

Organ­ic Chem­istry II is designed for the stu­dent to take the lec­ture (CHEM1021) and lab (CHEM1021L) con­cur­rent­ly in order to earn four cred­its. For the full four cred­its, you must reg­is­ter for both CHEM1021 and CHEM1021L. For stu­dents who only need a spe­cif­ic por­tion of Organ­ic Chem­istry II, how­ev­er, you have the option to take lec­ture only (CHEM1021 three cred­its) or lab only (CHEM1021L one cred­it).

Impor­tant: When select­ing lec­ture and lab with­in FlexReg, please be sure that the sec­tion num­bers match. In the event that there is no match­ing lab num­ber, please select a dif­fer­ent lec­ture, or con­tact an enroll­ment spe­cial­ist. 

Section numbers must match for lecture and lab

Complete at your own pace

Work­ing at the pace typ­i­cal for a four semes­ter hour course, the aver­age stu­dent will com­plete this online organ­ic chem­istry course in approx­i­mate­ly 16 weeks. Many stu­dents are non­tra­di­tion­al stu­dents who have elect­ed an online course for flex­i­bil­i­ty. Since the course is self-paced, you may com­plete the course in few­er than 16 weeks.


CHEM 1020 and CHEM 1020L must be com­plet­ed before reg­is­ter­ing for this course. All pre­req­ui­site cours­es must have been com­plet­ed suc­cess­ful­ly with­in the past sev­en years.
