  • Program Designation: Minor

    Program Contact: Dr. Francis M. Mulcahy

    Academic Division: Physical and Computational Sciences

    Program Description:

    If you want to minor in chemistry, you probably have a greater-than-average interest and ability in chemistry. Our minor will give you an understanding of the laboratory work and the types of calculations done by chemists, without many of the theoretical underpinnings acquired by chemistry majors.

    With a chemistry minor, you will likely be often sought in industry for many of the same positions held by chemistry majors. Our chemistry minor is often viewed as an advantage for students seeking employment in their own field. 

    Minor Requirements

    A minor in chemistry may be earned by completing the following requirements:

    Chemistry upper-level course - 3-4 Credits

    Total Credits: 23-24

    Please be advised

    Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
