Minor in Chemistry

To complete the Chemistry minor, students should complete a year of general chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, and then three additional chemistry courses, two having associated laboratories. To receive the minor, students must complete a written application.  Applications for the minor can be obtained from Ms. Nancy Proud in the Chemistry Office (Mendel 215A). 

To complete the requirements for a Minor in Chemistry, students must complete all three of the below conditions:

Note: Students cannot apply both 4611 and 4621 to the Chemistry minor.
