Chemistry (Minor)

The minor in chemistry is a useful addition for students majoring in biology, health sciences, and social sciences, as well as students seeking a secondary education teaching licensure. Through this minor, students will be able to develop a comprehensive knowledge base in chemistry as well as develop laboratory skills.

The chemistry minor requires a total of 22 credits. A minimum grade of C- must be earned in all courses applied to the minor. Biochemistry majors are excluded from earning a minor in chemistry. At least two three-credit courses must be taken at Marymount University to satisfy the minor requirements.
