Minor in Chemistry

Students whose major interest is in cell or molecular biology, physiology, physiological psychology, environmental studies, natural science or molecular physics, will find a good chemistry background to be a useful supplement to their major. The Chemistry minor provides this background and offers some flexibility in catering to the specific interest of students. Students should consult the Chemistry minor adviser as soon as possible after entering Towson to design programs to meet their needs.

The minor in Chemistry requires a minimum of 24 units in chemistry, 12 of which must be upper-division. At least 8 upper-division units must be taken at Towson. Courses taken elsewhere and accepted for transfer to Towson University may be used for the Chemistry minor.
