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 University to design programs to meet their needs.

The minor in Chemistry requires a minimum of 25 units, 12 of which must be upper (300-400) level. Minimum 8 upper-level units must be taken at Towson University. 

All courses that count toward the minor must be completed with a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher.
