Chemistry Minor Learning Outcomes

Students who successfully complete a minor in chemistry are expected to be able to:

  • Demonstrate a broad knowledge of the many of the fundamental concepts of stoichiometry, atomic theory, structure and reactivity of elements and compounds, physical properties of matter, kinetics, equilibrium, and thermodynamics;
  • Conduct safe and appropriate experiments to answer chemical questions, interpret the results of these experiments, and effectively communicate these results in both oral and written forms;
  • Critically analyze chemical data, hypotheses, results, theories, and explanations by applying both chemical knowledge and intuition.

The Chemistry Minor

The minor in Chemistry requires at least 20 semester hours in Chemistry and eight in Mathematics. A maximum of four semester hours may be presented on a Credit/No Credit basis for the minor. Chemistry courses numbered below 120 may not be counted toward the minor.
