Online Chemistry and Lab Courses

Organic chemistry for non-chemistry majors

NOTE: Due to the university’s efforts to reduce the risk and spread of COVID-19, Oregon State’s on-campus summer chemistry labs are subject to change. Please refer to the Ecampus Schedule of Classes, or contact the Department of Chemistry for more details at chemistry.ecampus@oregonstate.edu.

Organic chemistry is an upper-level sequence for students aspiring to careers in dentistry, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, chemical engineering, as well as students not majoring in chemistry, may require these additional chemistry training courses in their program of study.

Organic chemistry core classes

CH 337 is the capstone lab course for the organic chemistry series. The lab component is offered only during summer term. Because CH 331 and 332 are prerequisites for CH 337, the entire sequence cannot be completed during the summer.
