Program Description:
Take Chemistry in London, England! 

Students will take CHM 280: College Chemistry II. (3h) This course is a prerequisite for essentially all upper level Chemistry courses, and a required course for applying to medical school. It deals largely with chemical equilibria and applications thereof. It is an undergrad's primary exposure to the topics of kinetics and electrochemistry. The structure of the course will provide plenty of time to learn the course material as well as time to explore London and the UK. There will be planned trips to sites and events around London, including talks at the Royal Institution and trivia night at a local pub. Students will get to leave town to visit Cambridge and Oxford. There will also be events at Queen Mary University London (where students will be living) with other students from the UK and around the world. (Note: The current plan does not include the lab portion of the course, CHM280L. The lab can be taken in the following spring semester at Wake Forest.)

Dates: Summer Session II. July 10 to Aug 7, 2021.

Location London is one of Europe's largest and most cosmopolitan cities. Its famous sites include Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus, and Westminster Abbey. With a multitude of art galleries, museums, and pubs, London is endlessly interesting. The underground rail "tube" system provides easy access to all parts of the city. Students may conveniently visit Canterbury, Oxford, Bath, Dover, and other destinations (Scotland and Wales) via the excellent British railway system. 
Program Students will take CHM 280: College Chemistry II. (3h) This course is a prerequisite for essentially all upper level Chemistry courses, and a required course for applying to medical school. It deals largely with chemical equilibria and applications thereof. It is an undergrad's primary exposure to the topics of kinetics and electrochemistry. It is arguably the most central of chemistry courses. (The current plan does not include the lab portion of the course, CHM280L. The lab can be taken in the following spring semester at Wake Forest.)
