Chemistry Minor Goals and Objectives:

A minor in chemistry provides students with a solid foundation in general and organic chemistry and prepares them for graduate and professional programs that require a chemistry background.  By the end of their course of study, students with a chemistry minor will: 

  • Understand the fundamental principles governing chemical reactions and bonding.
  • Have mastered basic laboratory skills in general and organic chemistry.
  • Be able to evaluate and analyze chemical data using the scientific method.
  • Appreciate the connection between chemistry and other disciplines.
  • Have deepened their knowledge of the physical and natural world.
