Chemistry is the study of the properties of matter and the ways in which matter interacts combines and changes. It is inherently interdisciplinary in nature, with connections to the life sciences, geology, physics, and mathematics. A minor in chemistry will introduce a student to a variety of physical, analytical, and synthetic skills. Students will gain experience with multiple chemical techniques which are used in industrial, forensic, analytical, and environmental labs. A minor in chemistry could lead students to careers in any of these fields.
