Chemistry (Minor)

About the Program

All students interested in earning a minor in chemistry must complete one year of general chemistry and at least one semester of organic chemistry with lab. In addition, another eight (8) credit hours must be selected by advisement and in accordance with each student’s background and interests. Many chemistry courses have prerequisites, so care must be taken when taking elective courses.
