Minors

The Department of Chemistry offers two minors:

Chemistry

The minor in chemistry consists of 22 hours of chemistry which includes General Chemistry with lab (eight hours), Organic Chemistry with lab (eight hours), and six additional hours in chemistry at or above the 300 level. CHEM A496 credits will not count toward the minor. 

Forensic Chemistry

The minor in forensic chemistry consists of 22 hours of chemistry which includes General Chemistry with lab (eight hours), Organic Chemistry with lab (eight hours), Introduction to Forensic Methods (CHEM A315, three hours), and a three-credit-hour internship at a crime lab (CHEM A497).

Interdisciplinary Minors

The Department of Chemistry also participates in the Computational Science Interdisciplinary minor.

The minor in Computational Science consists of 13 hours of core courses and 8 or 9 hours of courses (including at least 2 hours of research) selected from options designed to support students from a wide array of disciplines. The program will be administered by a committee consisting of one faculty member each from the departments of Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Psychology.
