Minor in Chemistry
The School of Chemistry and Biochemistry provides many courses that are of interest to students from the Schools of Biology, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering, and students pursuing pre-health tracks. These students develop greater interest in chemistry while taking these courses and the proposed minor provides a means to enhance their knowledge in a structured and documented manner. Given the multi-disciplinary nature of science and engineering today, the option to pursue more in-depth study outside of the major in a manner documented on their transcripts will benefit graduates as they enter a competitive, global, and diverse workforce.
The minor is likely to be highly attractive to students to apply to medical, pharmacy, dental schools, and graduate schools.
