A minor in chemistry may be a useful addition to the programs of students majoring in other natural sciences areas. The minor consists of a minimum of 20 credits in chemistry, with at least 9 of these at or above the 300 level in residence at UWM.
For further information regarding degree requirements, see Academic Undergraduate Advisor – Gloria Freschl. Please bring a copy of your transcript when meeting with the advisor to declare a minor. Unofficial free of charge UWM transcripts may be obtained from the Department of Enrollment Services in Mellencamp Hall, Room 274.
