Chemistry Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The objective of the chemistry minor is to provide broad introductory course work and laboratory experience to science majors without the more technical mathematical and chemical prerequisites required of the chemistry major. The chemistry minor is open to all CLAS students and should prove beneficial for science majors, pre-professional health science majors and students seeking science education certification.

There are course work and grade requirements that must be satisfied to obtain a chemistry minor. Students must take a minimum of 20 semester hours of chemistry courses with a minimum of 10 upper-division chemistry hours. Upper-division course work must include three of the six subdisciplines that comprise chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, physical and environmental chemistry. All chemistry minor courses must be taken for a letter grade rather than with the pass/fail grading option. A minimum 2.0 GPA in the chemistry minor courses must be earned. To satisfy the department residency requirement, a minimum of 7 upper-division hours of chemistry must be taken at the Downtown Campus. A complete description of the chemistry minor may be obtained in the department office or Web site:
