Requirements for a Minor in Chemistry

Six courses as follows:

  1. 120/125L, 211, 212/212L, 240/240L.
  2. Two additional Chemistry courses of which one must be at the 200-level or above and the other must be 300-level or above. Both courses must be at least 4-credits.  

Science is increasingly interdisciplinary. Students who wish to pursue careers and/or further study in biology, neuroscience, environmental science, physics or other sciences may see the need to have a firm background in chemistry as well. By declaring a minor, students may work with a minor advisor who will help these students find and define a course of study that can complement their future plans. Students looking to pursue a career in patent or intellectual property or patent law can also benefit by having a chemistry minor.
