Minor in Chemistry

The minor in chemistry is offered to provide students with a basic understanding of the structure and behavior of matter at the atomic and molecular level. Increasingly, the control of matter at the level of individual molecules is becoming the key ingredient in sweeping technological advances such as genetic engineering, micro and molecular electronics, advanced materials, and nanotechnology. A minor in chemistry offers a strong complement to major areas of study such as biology, physics, geology, psychology, engineering, pre-medicine, and pre-professional degree programs.
