Students electing a minor within the Department of Chemistry may only elect ONE of the five minors offered by the Department.

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 requires that a student earn a grade of at least C- in all CHEM courses and mathematics and physics courses which are prerequisite for subsequent elections. A major program grade point average of at least 2.0 is required; this includes chemistry courses, mathematics and physics prerequisites and advanced electives which are part of a plan for the major. Prerequisites must be taken for a grade. Students must request any change in a 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;
