Course Information

At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors and that you will have plenty of opportunites to get to know the faculty in your discipline.

Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. We are always developing and trying out new classes, so the list may change now and then. You can use the links to the left to read descriptions of the courses listed below.


CHEM 220: General Chemistry I Lecture, Discussion and Laboratory

CHEM 230: General Chemistry II Lecture, Discussion and Laboratory

CHEM 370: Fundamentals of Physical Chemistry

CHEM 437: Solid State & Surface Chemistry
