Minor Requirements

The minor in chemistry allows interested students with a major in other fields to complete a significant portion of the course work required for the chemistry major. It allows the flexible selection of course work from the traditional subdisciplines of organic, inorganic, physical, and analytical chemistry.


CHEM 171/181/172/182 or CHEM 151/161/152/162 or CHEM 110/131/141/132/142 or equivalent. Courses listed must be completed with a grade of C- or better.

Some chemistry courses at the 300 level may have additional chemistry, physics, and/or mathematics prerequisites.

Course Requirements (6 units)

Other programs for the minor may be designed with departmental approval to suit individual needs; interested students should contact Dr. Fred Northrup, Director of Undergraduate Studies.
