Abstract. We have developed a short course in computational molecular modeling for upper division undergraduate Chemistry majors. Our hope is to continue to grow this course into a full semester, upper division, undergraduate elective. The goal of the course is to introduce undergraduate Chemistry majors to computational quantum mechanical methods used in molecular modeling research.
