Why get a Chemistry Minor?
The Department of Chemistry offers a major program of study leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry as well as a minor program of study in chemistry. Introduction to Chemistry/Lab (CHM 105/106) satisfies the general education requirement for a laboratory science course. The objectives of course work and programs in this department are to give students a clear insight into the underlying principles of chemical phenomena and to introduce them to the analytical and reasoning skills that produce this insight. By emphasizing principles, courses in chemistry contribute to a student's general education and furnish a sound foundation for graduate and professional study and careers in chemistry and other scientific, technical and professional fields.
Students intending to major or minor in chemistry must earn a letter grade of C or better in all required chemistry courses. Students planning graduate study in chemistry are strongly encouraged to take PHY 223 Physics III, MAT 215 Linear Algebra, MAT 312 Differential Equations, and CSC 111 Fundamentals of Computer Science I.
