A minor in Chemistry is intended to broaden the academic base of students who already have a solid scientific background in areas such as biology, microbiology, biochemistry and engineering. This curriculum exposes students to the first two years of introductory chemistry and provides additional knowledge at a more advanced level in an area of the student’s choice. Students must take a minimum of 23 credits from the following list, including at least one advanced chemistry course (CHY 242 or CHY 4XX). At least 14 credits must be taken at the University of Maine.
A 500 level chemistry course can be used to fulfill the minor requirement by obtaining permission from the course instructor and academic advisor. No grade below a C- will be accepted toward these requirements.
