The KSU rules for a minor state: "15-18 hours, at least 12 of which must be nonduplicative outside the major's primary discipline and beyond the courses required for the student's major and general education requirements". This rule does not allow for a general listing of courses required for a minor, because the courses required would depend upon the student's major. For example, since organic chemistry is required of a biology major, those courses could not count toward a minor in chemistry for a biology major wanting to minor in chemistry. Therefore we require that a student develop the minor courses with a chemistry advisor and with the approval of the student's major advisor.
An example of courses that might be required for a minor for the student not majoring in a discipline requiring organic chemistry might be: CHEM 3361, 3361L, 3362, 3362L, 2800, 2800L, and 3050. An example of courses that might be required for a minor for the student majoring in a discipline requiring organic chemistry might be: CHEM 2800, 2800L, 3050, 3110, 3105L, 3000, 3501, and 3501L.
Chemistry courses taken to satisfy the minor requirement must be taken at KSU.
