Department of Chemistry, College of Science and Engineering

30-33 credits

Introduction

The Department of Chemistry, in addition to its core of fundamental studies in Analytical, Biochemistry, Inorganic, Organic and Physical chemistry has a variety of elective courses that offer diversity in training, study and research at the undergraduate level. Within the department, faculty members are active in many research areas including biofuels, protein engineering, computer modeling, catalysis, nanomaterials, materials for solar cells, electrochemistry, polymers, thin films, protein structural analysis by nuclear magnetic resonance and x-ray crystallography, and organic synthesis.

Why Consider a Chemistry Minor?

A minor in chemistry provides additional depth and laboratory experience beyond the chemistry required for another major program, including direct access to modern laboratory equipment and instrumentation. Major fields that are especially complemented by a minor in chemistry include Environmental Studies, Environmental Science, Psychology, Behavioral Neuroscience, and some pre-health careers.
