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 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.

Why CBU?

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.

Career Opportunities

  1. Chemists and materials scientists - use their knowledge to develop new and improved products and to test the quality of manufactured goods.
  2. Research scientist - Academic, government and industrial organizations.
  3. Forensic science technicians - help investigate crimes by collecting and analyzing physical evidence.
