Minor in Chemistry

Gain valuable insight into the the basic elements of the periodic table — the building blocks of our world.

The Chemistry minor at Colorado Christian University offers you a foundation in five major areas within the chemistry field. You'll study physical chemistry (kinetics and equilibrium), analytical chemistry (acids, base, redox), inorganic chemistry (atmospheric chemistry and metals), organic chemistry (alkanes and function groups), and biochemistry (proteins, CHO, and nucleic structure and function). Students at CCU gain hands-on experience by regularly conducting experiments in the chemistry laboratory. The Chemistry minor provides a framework of knowledge that is ideal preparation if you wish to pursue an academic major in biology or science. It is also helpful if you're hoping to attend medical school.

Offered through the School of Science and Engineering, the Chemistry minor offers a concentrated area of coursework to supplement your major field of study. It is designed to enhance the range of topics and knowledge for a well-rounded student. It can provide exposure to important concepts that help students prepare for a fast-paced workplace.

About the School of Science and Engineering

In the School of Science and Engineering at Colorado Christian University, character forms the bedrock of God-honoring and kingdom-building science. We aim to help our students explore the world that God created, use cutting-edge technology, and discover how faith interacts with questions that arise out of studying science. We focus on teaching our students how to articulate a Christian perspective on issues such as bioethics, ecology, and human life.

Science and engineering programs are taught within the world of ideas, synthesizing the liberal arts, advanced theories, and applied technology. Our faculty intentionally seek out ways to hone a Christ-like character in our students, inspiring them to become moral and ethical, world-changing leaders. Purposefully small classes and laboratories invite students to learn with their hands as well as their minds. This instills a level of mastery necessary to become a leader in rapidly-advancing fields of science and engineering.
