Courses | Pre-Health Summer in London

During this 8-week summer program you choose two laboratory-based courses from a choice of four, each worth 4 credits.


Biology Courses (BI)

LONS BIGB 101S General Biology I and Lab
4 credits | View Syllabus
This course is an introduction to the science of living organisms, with emphasis on molecular and cellular aspects of energy processing, cell reproduction and genetics. Three class hours and three laboratory hours weekly.

LONS BIGB 102S General Biology II and Lab
4 credits | View Syllabus
This course is an introduction to the science of living organisms, with an overview of kingdoms with emphasis on structure and function of plants and animals and consideration of population biology and ecology. Three class hours and three laboratory hours weekly. Prerequisites: BI 101; or written permission of the Instructor and Department.

Chemistry Courses (CH)

LONS CHOC 201S Organic Chemistry I and Lab
4 credits | View Syllabus
This is a study of the correlation of acid-base theory, reaction mechanisms, molecular structure, chemical energetics, stereochemistry, and spectroscopy of organic functional groups, specifically alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alky halides, alcohols and ethers. Laboratory work stresses the synthesis, separation, identification and analysis of selected organic compounds using both micro- and macro-scale techniques. 1H NMR spectra are routinely acquired. Three class hours and three laboratory hours weekly. Prerequisite: General Chemistry or permission of the Department Chair

LONS CHOC 202S Organic Chemistry II and Lab: Structures, Mechanisms and Reactions
4 credits | View Syllabus
This continuation of CH 201, specifically organometallic compounds, conjugated systems, aromatics, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acid derivatives, amines and carbohydrates, and spectroscopy laboratory work stresses the synthesis, separation, identification and analysis of selected organic compounds using both micro- and macro-scale techniques. 1H NMR spectra are routinely acquired. Three class hours and three laboratory hours weekly. Prerequisite: CH 201; or permission of the Department Chair.
