Anthropology

In a world, where everything is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, a chemistry minor would be an excellent complement to several majors, especially in biological science, physics, engineering, earth science and business. If you are already majoring in a science program, it may take less credits for you to complete the program due to similar course requirements.
