The goal of this minor is to provide students with a solid, albeit limited, background in chemistry. The minor 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 6 areas of chemistry (Analytical, Biochemistry, Inorganic, Organic, Polymer, and Physical Chemistry). Laboratory courses are required for two (2) of these elective courses. For courses that are offered at 2 or 3 credits, the 3-credit option must be used.

Elective options include:

Curriculum Notes

* Only the three (3) credit version of this course may be used for completion of the Chemistry Minor.
