MSOE’s minor in chemistry will help students to gain a more in-depth understanding of the field. Having a strong understanding of chemistry may help to broaden a student’s chances of working in a variety of fields, including pharmaceutical, health care, regenerative medicine, nanotechnology, environmental science, materials science, polymers, plastics and alternative fuel sources.
To qualify for the minor, students must take 28 credits of eligible courses. This must include a minimum of 17 credits from the below list of approved courses, six credits of which much be from courses not specifically required for the student’s major. At least 50 percent of all credits toward the minor must have been earned in residence at MSOE, including six credits from the list of approved courses. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required for courses that are counted towards the minor. No more than four credits of approved courses without the CH-XXX designation will count towards the minor.
CH-200 Chemistry I or CH200A or CH200B
CH-201 Chemistry II
CH-222 Organic Chemistry I
Students must take at least 17 credits from the below courses:
Some of the above approved courses are offered as part of the regular course offerings, others are only offered if there is sufficient student interest, and many are on a two-year rotating schedule. The Physics and Chemistry Department is committed to offer enough courses for the chemistry minor within every four years, however there is no guarantee of availability of any particular course in any particular quarter.
