This is not exactly a survey course, but it does give you a general overview of inorganic and physical chemistry. We don’t go too in-depth on things, I just try to give you enough information to be confidently speak ‘Chemistry’ and be a much more engaging dinner party guest. By the end of this course, you should have some solid skills, and a deeper appreciation of chemistry, even if that means that you took a sacred vow never to touch the stuff again.
