Strengthen and Diversify your Degree with a Chemistry Minor

A chemistry minor provides thorough coverage of fundamental chemical principles, significant hands-on experience in laboratory settings, and the opportunity to study advanced topics of the student's choosing. For some science majors, including many biology majors, a significant portion of the chemistry minor requirements are already met through the major requirements, making the chemistry minor within easy reach. The minor can be obtained by both non-teaching and teaching majors, and consists of 23 credit hours.
