Degree Type: Primary or Secondary Minor
The minor in chemistry is designed to develop problem-solving ability, laboratory skills, data collection and an knowledge base in the areas of organic and inorganic chemistry. The minor will instill knowledge valuable to a variety of fields, including pharmaceutical, health care, dentistry, ecology, and teaching.
