The goal of this Minor is to provide students with a solid, albeit limited, background in Chemistry. The major requires 20 hours of CHEM courses (8 hours of required courses; 12 hours of elective courses). A grade of ‘C,’ or better, is required for all courses needed for the Chemistry Minor. At least 50% of chemistry courses applied toward a minor must be completed at SDSM&T.

Required Courses: 8 Credit Hours

Elective Courses: 12 Credit hours

Twelve (12) credit hours of courses at the 300-level, or above, including one 400-level course, are required. Elective courses must represent 3 of the 5 areas of Chemistry (Analystical, Biochemistry, Inorganic, Organic, and Physical Chemistry). Laboratory courses are required for two (2) of these elective courses.

Elective options include:
