Chemistry online? How is that possible? More and more students are finding that taking an OSU Chemistry class online is not only possible, but is a great way to meet the requirements of their degree program in a way that fits well in their life.
During the 2012/2013 academic year, students took more than 6600 credit hours of Chemistry classes online, second only to the Fisheries and Wildlife department in number of student credit hours. Most terms, about 12 classes are offered, including 2 different series of General Chemistry and the complete Organic Chemistry series. The CH 121/122/123 series is completely online, with the labs provided by OnLineChemLabs. For the higher level classes, the labs are offered in a condensed format that make it easy for distance students to travel to campus for a short time (like a 3 day weekend) to complete their requirements.
Who are our students? Our online instructors have students from all over the world, including students in the military in Afghanistan. Our students include working people that want to complete their degrees, spouses of military personnel, stay-at-home parents, and many others. Some on campus OSU students have found that taking their chemistry online fits well in their schedule as well.
