By earning a chemistry minor, you will learn foundational chemical principles and obtain practical laboratory skills that will enhance the value of any degree. There is also sufficient flexibility to explore a classic or specialized field of chemistry within the minor. If you continue in chemistry, only a few classes beyond the minor are needed to earn a BA in Chemistry as a second degree. A faculty advisor in chemistry can provide guidance for your best path. Employees with a chemistry background are employed in a very wide array of areas (see https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/careers.html).
