Minor in Chemistry

Students in all baccalaureate programs who wish to do so may add a minor to their program of study. The courses that make up a minor should be planned with the major advisor and must be approved by the time the student applies for graduation.

Within the fifteen hours (not including pre-requisites) of course work presented for the minor, the student must have a minimum adjusted grade point average of “C,” with no more than three hours of “D” work. A minimum of nine of the fifteen hours must be earned at Georgia Southern University. A maximum of three hours may be taken under the S/U grading system.

  • CHEM 1145 Principles of Chemistry I
  • CHEM 1146 Principles of Chemistry II
  • Upper Division Coursework (15 hours)


Upper Division Coursework (15 hours)
The chemistry minor also requires 15 hours above the 2100 level of which 9 hours must be upper division courses.  The following courses may NOT be counted in the 15 hours of upper division coursework:
