Chemistry or Biochemistry Minor


To add a chemistry or biochemistry minor, fill out the Change of Minor form, and drop it off in the Chemistry and Biochemistry office, 91 Klamath Hall.

Chemistry Minor

A minor in chemistry may be designed from course work in general chemistry, including the laboratory sequence, and at least four additional upper-division courses. Four possible areas of emphasis are outlined below. University requirements for the minor include a total of 24 credits in chemistry, 15 of which must be in upper-division courses and 12 of which must be completed at the University of Oregon. All courses for the minor must be completed with grades of C– or better. Credits earned in Seminar (CH 407), Reading and Conference (CH 405), and Special Laboratory Problems (CH 409) may not be applied as required course work for the minor.

Inorganic Chemistry: General chemistry with laboratories plus CH 411, 412, 413, 431.

Organic Chemistry: General chemistry with laboratories plus CH 331, 335, 336, 337, 338.

Organic Chemistry–Biochemistry: General chemistry with laboratories plus CH 331, 335; CH 337, 338, 461.

Physical Chemistry: General chemistry with laboratories plus CH 411, 412, 413, 417.

Biochemistry Minor

A total of 38 credits are required for a minor in biochemistry, distributed as follows:

Lower Division 18 credits
General chemistry sequence 12 credits
General chemistry laboratories 6 credits


Upper Division 20 credits
Organic Chemistry I, II (CH 331, 335) 8 credits
Biochemistry (CH 461, 462) 8 credits
Biochemistry (CH 463) or Biochemistry Laboratory (CH 467) 4 credits


Other courses may be submitted for consideration and approval by the department. At least 12 credits for the biochemistry minor must be completed at the University of Oregon. All courses applied to the minor must be completed with grades of C– or better. Credits earned in Seminar (CH 407), Reading and Conference (CH 405), and Special Laboratory Problems (CH 409) may not be applied to required course work for the biochemistry minor.
