Chemistry Minor

The Chemistry minor at Avila

Learn about the building blocks of life with Avila’s Chemistry minor. You’ll come away understanding the principles of organic and biochemistry, be able to read and interpret complex scientific papers, and be able to draw upon that knowledge to make well-informed decisions. You’ll log time in the laboratory, working alongside your peers and graduate students. All while developing a deeper sense of appreciation for the natural sciences.

A minor at Avila gives you the individualized instruction and mentorship the University has been providing to generations of students. And with employers increasingly looking for well-rounded, intellectually flexible candidates for leadership positions, you’ll have a leg up on the competition thanks to your degree from Avila.
