Chemistry Minor

Chemistry is the central science that connects physics, biology, engineering, and medicine. If you are interested in the sciences, you would greatly benefit from a minor in chemistry to complement their studies.

The chemistry undergraduate degree program, within Parkside's Chemistry Department, is approved by the American Chemical Society and offers an innovative organic-first curriculum that introduces you to advanced instrumentation, including nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry, all in the first semester of college. Parkside's chemistry facilities include a computer lab maintained specifically for chemistry students.

You’ll find a wealth of opportunities, whether it’s conducting independent research in faculty labs using new tools like a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer or interning with industry-leading companies such as Abbott Laboratories. And, when you find the right opportunity, we make it easy for you to take part. Student-faculty ratios for advanced chemistry classes are as low as 10:1, so you can be sure you’ll receive focused, quality attention and access.


Small class sizes, a program approved by the American Chemical Society, and hands-on experience provide you with every advantage as a chemistry major. You’ll gain over 500 hours of engaged, interactive laboratory, experiment, and project experience. Plus, you’ll be set up to succeed if you choose to continue your education at graduate and medical programs such as Yale, Purdue, and UW-Madison. And companies such as SC Johnson and Sigma-Aldrich will be looking for you.
