The Chemistry minor consists of 16 semester hours. Courses taken in Core Area F (lower division major requirements) may be counted as coursework in the minor. Courses taken to satisfy Core Areas A through E (general education) may not be counted as coursework in the minor. Students must earn a grade of at least “C” in all course work applicable to a formal minor. When a student’s major and minor programs require the same courses, there is no limit on duplcate credit.
We require that a student develop the minor courses with a chemistry advisor and with the approval of the student’s major advisor. Biochemistry majors are excluded from earning a minor in Chemistry. At least 6 hours of chemistry must be taken at KSU to satisfy the minor upper-division requirement.
At a minimum, the following courses must be taken as part of a student’s course of study for a student to earn a minor in Chemistry.
- CHEM 2800 - Quantitative Analytical Chemistry
- CHEM 2800L - Quantitative Analytical Chemistry Laboratory
- CHEM 3361 - Modern Organic Chemistry I
- CHEM 3361L - Modern Organic Chemistry Lab I
- Any 3000- or 4000-level CHEM courses to make the total number of CHEM credit hours equal to 16.
