Minor Program in Chemistry

A minimum of 23 units of chemistry, including CHEM 115 and CHEM 215/CHEM 216, are required to qualify for a minor in chemistry. Ten of the 23 units must be upper division, with at least 6 of those units taken at SF State. Courses from community colleges can not be used to meet the upper division unit requirement for the minor.

All courses must be completed with grades of C- or better (CR/NC grading is not accepted). Only one course from each of the following pairs can be counted towards the minor:

CHEM 130General Organic Chemistry3
or CHEM 233 Organic Chemistry I
CHEM 349General Biochemistry3
or CHEM 340 Biochemistry I

The following courses cannot be counted toward the minor:

CHEM 100Preparation for Chemistry3
CHEM 101Survey of Chemistry3
CHEM 102Survey of Chemistry Laboratory1
