If you’re a science major, adding a minor in chemistry can augment your knowledge and your credentials, enhancing your marketability to graduate schools and future employers.
The minor in chemistry is especially popular with genetic engineering majors: To earn this minor, genetic engineering majors require only one additional course (CHE 331: Inorganic Chemistry OR CHE 335 Physical Chemistry) in addition to their major requirements.
Many other science majors can also use some of the required credits for their major toward the chemistry minor. Biochemistry majors, however, may not minor in chemistry.
- CHE 111 Chemical Principles 4 credits
- CHE 112 Chemical Equilibrium and Analysis 4 credits
- CHE 205 Organic Chemistry I 4 credits
- CHE 206 Organic Chemistry II 4 credits
- CHE 331 Inorganic Chemistry 3 or 4 credits OR CHE 335 Physical Chemistry 3 or 4 credits
- Plus at least one additional course in chemistry at the 300-level
Plus the following cognate courses:
- MAT 141 Calculus I 3 credits
- MAT 142 Calculus II 3 credits
- PHY 101 Introductory College Physics I 4 credits
- PHY 102 Introductory College Physics II 4 credits
