Chemistry Minor

Chemistry Minor

When it comes to science, many of the subfields work together and gaining an understanding of multiple fields can help you make new connections and develop new skills. If you’re interested in tailoring your current course of study to include your interests in organic or inorganic chemistry, physical or analytical chemistry, you can add a chemistry minor from Indiana University Kokomo!

Taking courses to complete the chemistry minor, you’ll gain an understanding of key concepts in the field and gain the skills you need to evaluate things for yourself. With a Minor in Chemistry, you’ll have the opportunity to take courses ranging from Principles of Chemistry to Energy and Green Chemistry – A Natural Science Perspective to Organic Spectroscopy.

To earn a minor in chemistry, students must complete a minimum of twenty-one (21) credit hours in chemistry with a minimum grade of C- in each course. Students must take all the necessary prerequisites before enrolling in courses required for the minor. The following courses are required: 

CHEM-C 105: Principles of Chemistry I (3 cr.), CHEM-C 125 Experimental Chemistry I (2 cr.), CHEM-C 106 Principles of Chemistry II (3 cr.), CHEM-C 126 Experimental Chemistry II (2 cr.), CHEM-C 341 Organic Chemistry I (3 cr.), CHEM-C 310 Analytical Chemistry (3 cr.)

Students must also take one of the following laboratory courses: CHEM-C 311 Analytical Chemistry Laboratory (2 cr.) or CHEM-C 343 Organic Chemistry I: Laboratory (2 cr.).

Finally, students can select one (or more) course(s) from the following list to complete the 21-credit hour minimum requirement:

CHEM-C 342 Organic Chemistry II (3 cr.), CHEM-C 344 Organic Chemistry II (2 cr.), CHEM-C 300 Energy and Green Chemistry: A Natural Science Perspective (4 cr.), CHEM-C 329 Biochemistry I: Proteins and Enzymes (5 cr.), CHEM-C 340 Biochemistry II (5 cr.); CHEM-C 361 Physical Chemistry I (3 cr.), CHEM-C 400 Chemical Information Sources and Services (1 cr.), CHEM-C 430 Inorganic Chemistry (3 cr.), CHEM-C 443 Organic Spectroscopy (3 cr.).
