Chemistry Minor

The minor in Chemistry (CHEM) consists of a year of General Chemistry plus student selection from a variety of upper division courses. The minor is open to all undergraduates except Chemistry majors, and of particular value to students majoring in fields related to chemistry, such as biology, the earth sciences, physics, and the pre-professional programs in the health sciences and engineering. Students planning to complete requirements for a Chemistry minor must make all arrangements with the Chairperson of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 249 Physical Science, 607.436.3193.
