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.
|Course Number||Course Name||Credit Hours|
|Total Minor Credit Hours||19-27|
|CH 141, 142, 143, 144 (or CH 151, 153)||General Chemistry I-II & Lab I-II (or Chemical Principles & Lab)||10 (5)|
|CH 221, 222, 223, 224||Organic Chemistry I-II & Lab I-II||8|
|Two CH2XX, 3XX or 4XX courses with corequisite lab(s)||6 - 9|
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.
