Minors in Chemistry

The Minor in Chemistry requires a minimum of 24 acceptable units of chemistry, including general chemistry (Chemistry 120A,B) plus 14 units of upper-division chemistry courses. These courses must be completed with an overall grade-point average of 2.0. A list of approved upper-division chemistry classes is available from the department office.

The Minor in Chemistry is appropriate for students majoring in Biological Science, Geological Science, or Physics. It is also appropriate for students who have an interest in art restoration, environmental science, forensic science, industrial administration, medical technology, patent or environmental law, or science writing. Students with an interest in these or other areas should consult the chemistry department about courses for the minor which are most appropriate for their interests.
