Minor in Green Chemistry & Engineering

The minor in green chemistry and engineering (MGCE) is designed for students who want to expand the breadth of their undergraduate majors by incorporating the principles of green chemistry and green engineering into their BA and BS degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, environmental science or a related area.   A minimum of 21 hours of course work and a minimum GPA of 2.0 in those courses are required for the minor. No courses in the minor may be taken P/NC.
