College of Liberal Arts
  • Program Type: Undergraduate minor related to major
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2017
  • Required credits in this minor: 15 to 16
Chemistry probes the fundamental concepts of nature and helps us understand the world around us. It deals with all substances at the molecular level: their composition, their properties, and how they are transformed into new substances. Chemistry is a central science of great importance to society. It provides a broad range of opportunities in many specialized fields, including biotechnology, polymer chemistry, environmental chemistry, materials chemistry, and medicine.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Minor Requirements
Credits from seminars or special topics courses may not be applied toward the minor. A maximum of two credits of directed study may be applied. At least five credits (two courses) must be completed at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities campus. Students may complete no more than one degree in the Chemistry program: a BA or a BS or a minor.
