Loyola University Chicago

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Minor in Chemistry

Students majoring in areas other than chemistry and biochemistry may satisfy requirements for a minor concentration in chemistry by completing a minimum of 24 credit hours of chemistry with grades of “C-” or better with an overall minor GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Required Courses:

Chem 101/111 General Chemistry A Lecture and Lab = 4 credit hours
Chem 102/112 General Chemistry B Lecture and Lab = 4 credit hours
Chem 223/225 Organic Chemistry A Lecture and Lab = 4 credit hours
Chem 224/226 Organic Chemistry B Lecture and Lab = 4 credit hours
Chem 212         Elementary Quantitative Analysis Lec = 3 credit hours
Chem 214         Elementary Quantitative Analysis Lab = 1 credit hours

                                                                         Subtotal:  20 credit hours

Plus four additional credit hours at the 300 level are required.   Total: 24 credit hrs.

Not less than 8 credit hours must be unique to each minor; that is, the courses in question are considered as actually fulfilling requirements of one minor, not of more than one minor or major. FOR EXAMPLE: If your major requires CHEM 212, 214 and 361 you are then required to take an additional 7 credits of CHEM classes that are NOT required for your major (or other minors).

NOTE: Only 1 credit hour of Chem 300 (Undergraduate  Research) and only 1 credit hour of Chem 380 (Chemistry Seminar) will be accepted toward the minor.

No more than 12 hours can be transferred from another University.

Effective: 2/21/2017
