The fundamental role that chemistry plays in medicine, pharmacy, and the environment can be further explored in the chemistry minor. Basic, clinical, and field research in these disciplines all involve the application of chemical principles and techniques. The chemistry minor at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences offers advanced courses in chemistry expanding on the base provided by general and organic chemistry. Cross disciplinary in its approach, the chemistry minor complements the student's major area of study. This minor can be combined with any major and minor except the chemistry major and APS major with a concentration in biological and physical sciences.
