Minors

Minor in Chemistry

A minor in chemistry shall consist of the following courses (minimum grade of C required):

CHEM C105 Principles of Chemistry I
CHEM C106 Principles of Chemistry II
CHEM C125 Experimental Chemistry I (2 cr.)
CHEM C126 Experimental Chemistry II (2 cr.)
An additional 10 credit hours above the 200-level with a minimum grade of C.


Minor in Biochemistry

A minor in biochemistry shall consist of the following courses (minimum grade of C required):
(All courses are 3 cr. hours unless otherwise designated.)

BIOL L102 Introduction to Biological Sciences II (5 cr.)
BIOL L211 Molecular Biology
CHEM C484 Biomolecules and Catabolism
CHEM C485 Biosynthesis and Physiology
CHEM C486 Biological Chemistry Laboratory (2 cr.)

Any course counted toward the biochemistry minor may not also be counted toward the major if the course is within the same department as the major. Students may substitute appropriate science courses for the above if these courses are counted toward the major.

For chemistry majors, an appropriate course substitution for CHEM C484 Biomolecules and Catabolism would include:

BIOL L311 Genetics
BIOL L312 Cell Biology
BIOL L317 Developmental Biology
BIOL L319 Genetics Laboratory
BIOL L323 Molecular Biology Laboratory

For biology majors, appropriate course substitutions for BIOL L102 Introduction to Biological Sciences II and BIOL L211 Molecular Biology would include:

CHEM C341 Organic Chemistry I Lectures
CHEM C342 Organic Chemistry II Lectures
CHEM C343 Organic Chemistry I Laboratory (2 cr.)
