The Minor in Chemistry is offered by the Department of Chemistry. Courses prerequisite to all chemistry courses must be passed with a grade of “C” or better (“C-” not accepted).
University Graduation Requirements
To be awarded a minor, at least 12 units of coursework must be completely distinct and separate from the coursework in the major, and coursework for the minor must include a minimum of 6 upper-division units (University Policy S16-4). Minor preparation or support courses do not count toward the 12 distinct units. Of the coursework for the minor, at least 6 units completed in residence at SJSU. The minimum aggregate GPA for all coursework required for the minor must be at least 2.0.
Approved courses from at least two areas beyond general chemistry, chosen from analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry (including at least one lab course; minimum of six units must be upper division courses and can include CHEM 120S)
