Minor - Program Requirements
Kalvin Gregory, PhD, Program Coordinator
Fugitte Science Center, Room 330
The mission of the Chemistry minor is to enhance the foundation of chemical knowledge of students pursuing biochemical or health-related professions.
Some courses taken for the minor may simultaneously fulfill general education requirements. Please see the Graduation Requirements (bachelor’s degrees) section of this catalog for information on the general education program.
Students should note that the minor contributes 14 hours toward the required 39 hours of 3000-4000 level coursework.
Program Requirements: 34-42 hours
Along with the general education program and a major, students must complete the minor’s prerequisite and core requirements and must complete the related studies requirements as indicated.
