Chemistry Minor

The Chemistry Department made changes to the chemistry minor to make it easier for students to obtain a minor in chemistry. These changes are effective beginning Fall 2017. A minor in chemistry is available to students majoring in any other program. A cumulative GPA of 2.0 must be achieved in the requirements.

Note to Advisors: for a variety of majors which require a biochemistry course, the minor in Chemistry could be achieved by taking either CH 435/436 (Biochemistry I and II) or CH 431 (General Biochemistry) and another course at the 2XX-level or higher. When offered, Special Topics courses (CH 495) count toward this additional course.
