Why Minor in Chemistry?
A minor in chemistry allows students outside the department to obtain a strong, distributed background in the discipline. It is particularly useful for students anticipating careers in:
- Biological sciences
- Health professions
- Environmental sciences
- Chemical engineering
- Secondary education
- Any career in which a basic understanding of the molecular sciences is helpful
A minor in chemistry requires a minimum of 20 credit hours of approved chemistry courses.
All courses counted toward a minor must be taken from classes approved for chemistry majors, and must include courses from at least two different areas of chemistry. Transfer students seeking a minor must take courses within the UNO Department of Chemistry above the 1000-level in at least two areas.
