Students interested in Chemistry may choose to pursue a minor either to supplement the work in their majors or to fulfill the requirements for a related area within their majors. Biology majors, who are already required to complete the general and organic chemistry sequences, would only need an additional six to eight credits to earn a Chemistry minor. The minor in Chemistry requires that students complete eight courses and labs for a total of 22-24 credits. Eight of these credits may also be used to satisfy General Education requirements. The remaining 14-16 credits are in addition to any course used for General Education.
Complete the following two courses (eight credits) to fulfill the Natural Science Sequence requirement in General Education:
|CHEM 0110||General Chemistry I|
|CHEM 0120||General Chemistry II|
Complete the following lectures and labs for eight credits:
|CHEM 0310||Organic Chemistry I|
|CHEM 0330||Organic Chemistry I Lab|
|CHEM 0320||Organic Chemistry II Lab|
|CHEM 0340||Organic Chemistry II Lab|
Complete six to eight additional credits in Chemistry or Biochemistry by selecting one or more of the following:
|CHEM 0250 & 0260||Introductory Analytical Chemistry and Lab (4 credits)|
|CHEM 1250 & 1255||Instrumental Analysis and Lab (4 credits)|
|CHEM 1311||Advanced Chemistry (3 credits) (320/340 prerequisite)|
|CHEM 1380||Techniques of Organic Research (2 credits)|
|BIOSC 1580||Biochemistry Seminar (1 credit) (1000 or 1810 prerequisite)|
|BIOSC 1820||Metabolic Pathways and Regulation (3 credits) (1810 prerequisite)|
|BIOSC 1830||Biochemistry Laboratory (3 credits) (1810 prerequisite)|
NOTE: Courses used to satisfy the Biology major requirements cannot be used to satisfy the Chemistry minor.
Each course for the Chemistry minor must be completed with a grade of C- or better.
