Chemistry Minor

Studying chemistry will prepare you for a variety of careers. Many chemists work in industries that produce pharmaceuticals, cleaners, personal care products, plastics and thousands of other materials relied upon for everyday life. Adding a minor in chemistry (24 units) can provide knowledge and skills to augment those of related majors (for example in biology and health science) or provide a level of technical expertise for students pursuing majors across the disciplines.

At CBU, you will learn under professors who are dedicated to their students. Because of the small student:faculty ratio, students get hands-on experience with a variety of modern instrumentation in recently constructed facilities.
