Course Level Recommendations
ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
To develop an understanding of the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics and its application to chemical problems. To improve student's numerical skills and to develop reasoning and problem-solving expertise. To apply theory so as to understand the spectra of atomic and molecular species. To provide a theoretical background to practical laboratory training. To develop a better and more detailed understanding of coordination chemistry and the application of ligand field, valence bond and molecular orbital theory to describe both bonding and excited state properties. Discuss the application of physical techniques for the study of transition metal complexies.
1. Identify the manifestations of quantum mechanics in the every day world and in the chemical laboratory.
2. Understand the wave nature of atomic and molecular orbitals through detailed consideration of model wave systems.
3. Analyse spectrophotomeric data of inorganic complexes in terms of accepted models for the bonding in these complexes.
4. Demonstrate an understanding of the application of increasingly complex models to the interpretation of scientific data, as required by that data.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
