The Chemistry minor provides students with an understanding of the basic nature and behavior of the matter and energy comprising the universe.

I appreciate the Chemistry program’s small class sizes at AIC. You really have a chance to get to know your professors, and they will go out of their way to help and support you in any way they can.

—Karlbuto Alexandre ’14 Chemistry Minor

In the classroom. In the workforce.

Career Opportunities

As a graduate, you’ll be prepared to work in a variety of settings, including industrial laboratories
, clinical laboratories, chemical, and pharmaceutical manufacturers, food and drug industries, and educational institutions.


  • CHE1600: General Chemistry I, with laboratory and review
  • CHE1700: General Chemistry II, with laboratory and review

Plus 12 credits from 2000-level chemistry courses that satisfy the chemistry major and include at least two credits of laboratory.

Course Descriptions

This course presents fundamental principles of chemistry, including a study of atomic and molecular structure, stoichiometry, and the states of matter. It is an introductory course for science majors, and is the course required for admission to medical school. It may also be used to satisfy the college’s general requirement in science. Co-enrollment in CHE211R (review) is required.

A continuation of CHE1600, this course includes a study of chemical kinetics, acids and bases, equilibrium, thermodynamics, electrochemistry, and the chemistry of aqueous solutions. Co-enrollment in CHE212R (review) is required
