Chemistry, Minor

Chemistry is the central science and has wide applications throughout society. Many students want to gain a deeper understanding of the molecular processes behind the machinery of life. Other students enjoy the kinesthetic learning and the opportunity to get into the laboratory and see how science is practiced in a practical setting. Some students are interested in the theoretical aspects of chemistry. Specifically, how mathematics and computers can be used to design the newest materials and pharmaceuticals to improve the quality of life for people throughout the world.

Students who choose a minor in Chemistry will receive a mixture of classroom and practical laboratory instruction. Students will take General Chemistry, which contains sections from a number of different subdisciplines. This will be followed by courses in Organic/Inorganic Materials and Nuclear Chemistry. The minor consists of eight Chemistry courses.
