Chemistry Minor

Please click here  to see Chemistry department information.

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.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.

Program Delivery

  • This is an on-campus program.

Declaring This Minor

  • To register your minor in chemistry, please visit the CLAS advising office in NC 4002. After establishing your minor status, you are encouraged to meet with the chemistry minor advisor, Dr. Priscilla Burrow.
