PEAK Minors

PEAKS | NSM

The central science of chemistry is at the intersection of biology, physics, and mathematics. Thus, an understanding and appreciation of its precepts, practices, and limitations is germane to all sciences and is a vital component of the liberal arts curriculum. The quantitative nature of chemistry necessitates an ability to gain and apply mathematical tools. Students are assumed to be proficient in algebra and are expected to complete a minimum of one mathematics course, excluding MAT-105 and MAT-221.
