CHEM 201 - Color, Light, and Chemistry


Fall, Spring (3) Harbron, Wustholz (College 200, NQR)

Intended for non-science majors, Color, Light, & Chemistry will use the theme of color and light to weave a narrative through basic concepts in chemistry.  Students will develop their understanding not only of the foundations of chemistry (e.g., organic and inorganic structure, acid-base chemistry, light, spectroscopy) through the color and light theme, but also how scientific approaches can be used to create tangible products (e.g., dyed textiles, paint analysis). This course will place the chemistry of color and light in the broader context of art, philosophy, literature, culture, dye industry, artifact analysis, and world trade. Students will put course concepts into practice through hands-on experiments, demonstrations, and a project portfolio. (This course is anchored in the NQR domain, and also considers aspects of the ALV and CSI domains.)
