Lights, Camera, ACTION: The Chemistry of Movies and TV
College of Sciences
This is one of two introductory courses that can be taken individually or both taken (in any order) to satisfy either 3 or 6 credits of required science electives for nonscience majors. Science majors, allied-health majors and science education majors may take this course for general elective credit but it will not count for science elective credits. This course will explore how chemistry is portrayed in TV and movies. Students will take basic chemistry principles and learn how to apply them to pop culture references such as found in shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Star Trek…and movies such as Jurassic Park.
Older syllabi may not be applicable to the current semester. Be sure to verify content with the instructor.
