As a natural science, chemistry is of fundamental importance to the understanding of many disciplines. A minor in chemistry often only requires a few courses beyond those required in many cognate curricula. Entrance into careers in pharmaceutical sales, environmental studies, forensic science, health sciences, engineering, and the biological sciences would be enhanced by obtaining a minor in chemistry. At least 8 hours of the required departmental course work must be completed at Bradley. The minor in chemistry consists of:
- CHM 110 General Chemistry I - 3 hrs.
- CHM 111 General Chemistry I Laboratory - 1 hr.
- CHM 116 General Chemistry II - 4 hrs.
- CHM 117 General Chemistry II Laboratory - 1 hr.
- CHM 252 Organic Chemistry I - 4 hrs.
- CHM 253 Organic Chemistry Laboratory I - 1 hr.
- CHM 256 Organic Chemistry II 3 hr.
- CHM 257 Organic Chemistry Laboratory II - 1 hr.
- CHM 292 Chemical Informatics - 1 hr.
- CHM 326 Analytical Chemistry - 4 hrs.
- One 3-4 hr. course numbered above 300 (excluding CHM 422) - 3–4 hrs.
- One year of college-level physics and one semester of calculus.
Total hours required for the minor: 38–39.
