The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers minors in either chemistry or biochemistry.
Below are the required courses to obtain a minor in either chemistry or biochemistry.
The College of Arts and Sciences will allow a maximum of 9 hours of transfer credit, including 6 upper-division credit hours, to count towards a minor.
These minor programs each require a minimum of six semesters of CHEM courses. Students may transfer in through organic chemistry only. All required courses must be complete with grade of C- or better, and the overall GPA in all CHEM courses taken must be 2.0 or higher.
Students who have taken CHEN 1211 and CHEM 1221 may substitute them for CHEM 1113/1114 in the minor requirements. Engineering students who have taken CHEM 4521 may use this course to satisfy the physical chemistry 1 requirement for both minors. CHEN 4521 can not be used to satisfy the physical chemistry requirement for either minor.
