Minor and Concentration
Students may complete a minor in chemistry by taking seven chemistry courses that include 107A, 108A, and five upper-level chemistry courses or departmentally designated courses, at least one of which must be a 300-level course, s37, or s42. Independent study courses (360 or s50) cannot be used to satisfy minor requirements. Only departmentally designated cross-listed courses may be applied toward the minor.
Students majoring in biochemistry or the chemistry track of environmental science may not minor in chemistry.
Pass/Fail Grading Option: Pass/fail grading may not be elected for courses counting toward the minor.
General Education: Any four chemistry courses, except for CHEM 218. At least one course must be at the 200-level or above, and may include CHEM s37 or CHEM s42.
1) CHEM 107A
2) CHEM 108A
3) Any two other chemistry courses, excluding CHEM 218. At least one course must be at the 200-level or above, including CHEM s37 and CHEM s42.
One non-Bates course may be applied toward the concentration if judged comparable to one of those above by the concentration coordinator and with prior approval. This concentration is not open to students who have declared a major or minor in chemistry, biology, neuroscience, biochemistry, or the chemistry track of environment studies.
