Get the skills and experiences that will give you an added advantage as you move from an undergraduate program to advanced STEM programs and STEM careers. Select the chemistry courses that will prepare you for careers in areas including environmental protection and policy, public health and safety, quality control and regulation, pharmaceutical sales, or forensics and toxicology. Are you seeking an advanced degree in medicine, dentistry, law, or the biological sciences? Broaden your knowledge base and enhance your credentials for the next steps in your career or pursue cross-disciplinary research in topics like biological chemistry, computational chemistry, chemical physics, and pharmaceutical sciences.
Upon completing this minor you will be able to demonstrate a mastery of the major concepts and principles of chemistry and address how the principles of chemistry relate to the larger world, including the impact of chemical discoveries on social, environmental, economic, and medically related issues.
To complete a chemistry minor, you will be required to take at least 15 credits at the 200-level or above. Students majoring in other sciences will have to take at least nine of these credits beyond the chemistry requirement of their chosen major. Students pursuing other STEM majors—or who have the ultimate goal of medical school—may also find it beneficial to complete this minor in chemistry.
