The Chemistry minor provides a broad and general exposure to the traditional areas of the chemical sciences. This minor is a natural companion to careers in biology, physics, geology, environmental science, genetics, science education, etc. A science minor is an excellent credential in the eyes of future employers and enhances opportunities for students interested in medical, allied health or other professional schools.
