New England College offers a minor in chemistry which would complement many majors at NEC like the biology, health science or environmental science major. Student take the five required courses below making a 20 credit minor.
This is a 20 credit minor where 8 credits (GenChem) are required in the core of the Health Science major.
After taking the required courses the students will have gained enough basic knowledge in the field of chemistry to warrant the granting of a minor. This would complement the biology and health science degrees well and help to demonstrate that the students have done the coursework to merit an acknowledgement for this area of concentration. All courses are currently offered at NEC on an annual or every other year basis (biochemistry) with teaching done by full time faculty.
