Analytical Chemistry Minor

PEAKS | Professional Studies & Enhancements |

The Analytical Chemistry Minor is meant to create a foundation in preparation for a career in laboratory chemical analysis. As a professional enhancement minor, the Analytical Chemistry Minor is further designed to help prepare students to succeed in graduate school work involving instrumentation and analytical chemical laboratory techniques. Through this minor, students will be introduced to statistical analysis of data, chemical science foundation, and techniques of standard laboratory practice and instrumentation in chemical analysis.

Students interested in the analytical chemistry minor should consider a major or minor in mathematics or one of the natural sciences.

Chemistry Minor

PEAKS | Natural Sciences & Mathematics |

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.
