The minor in Chemistry consists of 6 courses: 120, 211, 212, 240, and 2 additional courses: one must be at least 300-level, and the other may be at the 200-level or above. The final two courses must be at least 4-credit courses.
There are also three required lab courses:125, 240L, and 212L.
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 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.
