[The Physical Chemistry sequence has been renumbered because the content sequence of the two courses is being changed and the department wishes to avoid confusion between credit earned under the old numbers and the new numbers. Students wishing to repeat CHEM 461 should take CHEM 466 and students wishing to repeat CHEM 462 should take CHEM 465.]
