We offer conventional and specialized courses, including thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics, computational chemistry, electronic structure theory, classical mechanics, mathematics of chemical physics, reaction dynamics, and spectroscopy. There are additional opportunities in biological chemistry, materials science, physics, math, and computer science and opportunities to take tutorials in high-performance computing at the University of Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI).
