Neither the University of East Anglia nor the University of Queensland offers a suitable course as a substitute for organic I (Chemistry 241) at Dickinson. As a consequence: ALL SCIENCE AND PRE-HEALTH MAJORS NEED TO TAKE ORGANIC I AND II EITHER BEFORE THEY GO ABROAD, OR DURING THE SUMMER. Both universities offer chemistry courses in clusters and neither has a single course that covers the material as we do at Dickinson (or at most other universities in the U.S.) The course taught at UEA is very different in content and in organization from the standard coverage at all US colleges and universities, including Dickinson.

With our new curriculum, students who wait until their sophomore year to begin chemistry will not be able to start the organic sequence until the fall of their junior year. Since no course at UEA or UQ covers the content of just Chem. 241, students in this position who wish to study abroad for the fall semester only will either have to wait until their senior year to complete organic chemistry at Dickinson or take an approved two-semester sequence of organic courses in summer school. Students studying at UEA for the academic year can fulfill the Chem 241, 242 sequence by completing CHE-1C1Y at UEA. Students cannot fulfill organic chemistry at Queensland.
