Special Note:

 

For the Summer 2021 semester, some Langara chemistry courses will be delivered entirely on-line, while others will have lectures on-line but laboratories on-campus.

 The introductory and intermediate courses, 1114 and 1118, will be entirely on-line, including on-line laboratory tutorials.  While the course material may be accessed as recordings, posted notes, and automated review exercises, the graded learning assessments can require participation during some of the regularly scheduled hours shown in the registration guide.

 The general chemistry course, 1121, will be entirely on-line.  While the course material may be accessed as recordings, posted notes, and automated review exercises, the graded learning assessments can require participation during some of the regularly scheduled hours shown in the registration guide. SFU and UBC-V are granting 1121 full transfer credit as thier chem 121 courses.

 All other chemistry courses this summer, 1120, 1220, 2216, 2316, and 2416, are in a format that is not entirely on-line. these will have regular in-person, on-campus laboratory sessions, although their lectures will still be on-line as described above. These laboratory sessions will be fully compliant with provincial health and safety advisories, and operated with a high standard of care regarding virus transmission. Students are advsed to carefully consider theitr ability to attend labs on-campus, and their willingness to conform to our strict safety protocols.

 And we have now also added a section of chem1120 that is entirely on-line, except for on-campus labs on the weekend of July 23rd.  This "bootcamp" weekend of laboratory practice is intensive, but also kind of fun.  It won't use all of the hours scheduled.
