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. The 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 400 level CHY course.  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.
