As an “applied research” course, CHST4200 is designed to include both a lecture and a lab.
Exams will be based primarily on the lecture portions of the course and the lab portion will be undertaken with a shared goal of completing weekly assignments and producing a final research proposal, which will serve as the topic of each student’s final presentation.
