Why minor in chemistry? A minor in chemistry is a compliment for majors in biology or mathematics, and it can prepare you for professional programs in dentistry, forensics, medicine, and more. Additionally, if you are considering a career in a laboratory or in manufacturing, a chemistry background will serve you well. 

At Midway, when you choose a chemistry minor, you will take courses in general and organic chemistry, as well as biochemistry. Labs take place in our state-of-the-art facilities in the Anne Hart Raymond Center for Mathematics, Science & Technology. You will learn chemistry concepts and transferable analytic and report writing skills that can be used in your career or in graduate school. 

The minor in chemistry requires a minimum of 19 semester hours. At least 11 semester hours must be selected from courses numbered 300 or higher.
