22 credit hours required. Closed to Chemistry and Biochemistry majors.

The chemistry minor represents a valuable complementary field of study especially for students majoring in biology, geology, criminal justice and physics or experimental psychology. It is also possible that students in non-scientific areas of the liberal arts will find this minor a very rewarding and valuable part of their general education. Special Note: Students must maintain an average grade of 2.0 in courses counted toward the minor.

All courses are 3 credits unless noted. Credits are divided as follows:

Required Courses (Credits 8)
CHEM 105 General Chemistry 1: Lecture and Lab (4 credits)
CHEM 106 General Chemistry 2: Lecture and Lab (4 credits)

Elective Courses (Credits 14)
Under advisement from the department’s elective course offerings.

Only one non-major chemistry course may be counted towards the chemistry minor.

Recitations cannot be counted as elective courses.
