Chemical Measurement Science Minor

Effective Fall 2015

Exclusions:

The Chemical Measurement Science Academic Minor is not open to students concentrating in Biochemistry. Biomolecular Science, Interdisciplinary Chemical Sciences, or Chemistry.

Advising

Students wishing to pursue a minor offered by the Chemistry Department must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the Department's designated advisor. Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Polymer Chemistry, and Chemical Measurement Science minors are arranged in consultation with any Chemistry department advisor, while Biochemistry minors are arranged in consultation with any Biochemistry advisor. Information about scheduling advising appointments is available from the Department's website.

Grade Policies

The department strongly recommends that a student earn a grade of at least C– in all CHEM courses and mathematics, physics, and biology courses that are prerequisite for subsequent elections. A major program grade point average of at least 2.0 is required; this includes chemistry courses, mathematics, physics, and biology prerequisites, and advanced electives that are part of a major plan. Prerequisites must be taken for a grade. Students must request any change in a chemistry course grade within the first fifteen University Business days of the first full term following the term in which the disputed grade was issued.

Prerequisites

  • MATH 115 (or 120), or equivalent;
  • PHYSICS 135, 140, or equivalent.

Requirements

Minimum Credits: 18
  1. Core: CHEM 210/211, CHEM 260 or 370, CHEM 241/242, CHEM 447.
  2. Electives: CHEM 480*, CHEM 545*.
    *Although prerequisites are not enforced, students who elect CHEM 480 or 545 should consider taking, or having taken, advanced physical chemistry beyond the CHEM 260/370 level.
