Chemistry Biochemistry Environmental Chemistry

Study programme "Environmental Chemistry"

The courses within "Environmental Chemistry" study program of undergraduate academic studies which characterize its structure and content are divided into several groups. The first group includes the courses which broaden students’ fundamental knowledge of the most important natural sciences (primarily physics, physical chemistry and even ecology) and mathematics. The second group includes fundamental chemistry courses such as general, inorganic, organic and analytical chemistry, biochemistry, chemistry of natural products and applied (industrial) chemistry. Bearing in mind the goals of this study program, special attention is given to analytical chemistry, i.e. to instrumental analysis courses. With the theoretical foundation provided by these two groups of courses, students take courses which are closely related to environmental chemistry and which primarily focus on the nature and the fate of pollutants in soil, surface waters, groundwaters and wastewaters, atmosphere and food and the pollutants from some industrial processes and plants. From the methodological point of view, these courses comprise the third group of courses within which students also learn about the ways in which the problem of pollution, i.e. of pollutants, can be solved. The English language would form a separate group of courses in the groups of courses listed here.

The planned methods of teaching and instruction are lectures, laboratory (experimental) classes (laboratory work) and practical classes. Bearing in mind all special characteristics of this study program, intensive individual work is planned within laboratory work. This includes the use of the latest analytical instruments and equipment which can be used to detect the presence and distribution of both inorganic and organic pollutants in various substrates, i.e. segments of the environment. In the last several years the Faculty of Chemistry in Belgrade has been equipped with a significant number of modern instruments used in inorganic, organic and analytical chemistry. Students of this study program will have an opportunity to use them in their training. Furthermore, a special attention will be given to sampling within the laboratory classes. This includes frequent fieldwork with the aim of training students on how to take samples of soil, sediments, surface waters, groundwaters and wastewaters, food and air.

The teaching staff of the Faculty of Chemistry, who have high level of pedagogic skills and outstanding scientific achievements, work directly with the students, constantly revise the material covered by their courses and check the students’ progress and knowledge, which leads to the creation of a high-grade educational process with a high number of students who have successfully completed the courses.
