Directed Studies in Chemistry

Our faculty are open to discussing and sponsoring directed studies in chemistry. Directed studies are student-led projects that:

  1. immerse a student in advanced concepts beyond the scope of courses offered,
  2. enhance the learning of other students at Pierce College, or
  3. apply chemistry concepts to a community or campus outreach project.

Please contact and discuss with your Faculty Member of interest via email with a project in mind if you are interested in enrolling in directed studies (CHEM 185 / 285 / 385).

You may find your faculty's email address via the Faculty Directory.
