Here are the top 10 hardest classes at UConn. Take at your own risk, you’ve been warned!
Chemistry…Chem..istry…try…try another class
“What is the velocity of my feet walking out of this class?”
This class combines both Calculus and Science, with three class periods, and one three hour lab period.
Topics: fundamental principles of electromagnetism, optics, and wave propagation.
Your mind just might be literally blown.
Genetics + MCB + Physiology = major headache
Topics: principles of genetics, molecular and cell biology, and physiology applied to the mechanisms of disease and repair processes in the nervous system.
“Don’t ask me to solve a function at 8am when I’m not even functioning yet.”
If you’re coming from practical math into theoretical math, you’ve got alot in store for you.
Topics: logic, set theory, counting principles, mathematical induction, relations, functions, and abstract algebra and analysis.
This math class requires some serious preparation from Calculus II before enrolling.
Topics: two- and three-dimensional vector algebra, calculus of functions of several variables, vector differential calculus, line and surface integrals.
Biochem is generally required for: agriculture, general biology, medical technology, nursing, and pharmacy students.
Topics: the structure, chemistry, and metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins. Enzyme function and kinetics, energy metabolism, and structure and function of nucleic acids.
Tissues aren’t included, except in cells.
Topics: protein targeting, vesicle trafficking, cytoskeleton, cell-cell interactions in tissues, and the molecular basis of related human diseases.
Prepare yourself for four class periods and one 3-hour laboratory, not for the faint of heart.
Topics: biological macromolecules, metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins and nucleic acids, regulation of metabolism, and biosynthesis of biological macromolecules.
This advanced class is taken in sequence over two semesters.
Topics: vector spaces and their application to multivariable calculus and first-order, second-order and systems of differential equations.
“Can I exchange this class for another?”
Topics: Intermediate microeconomic theory presented with calculus and other quantitative techniques. Demand and supply, exchange and production, pricing, and welfare economics.
