2020-2021 Catalog


A minor in Chemistry will provide students with a solid foundation in general and organic chemistry and prepare them for graduate and professional programs that require a chemistry background, such as Art Conservation. Chemistry courses also form part of the majors in Biology and Biomedical Sciences, as well as General Education offerings. Biology majors take up to five semesters of chemistry, a large part of their major requirements.
