The world around you is full of riddles waiting to be solved.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers the chemistry minor for students who desire significant training in the chemical sciences without pursuing a degree in the discipline. The minor is particularly suitable for students in other majors whose career trajectories will require a thorough understanding of chemistry. Such careers may include secondary science teaching, biomedical engineers, biologists, dairy scientists, soil scientists, forensic psychologists, physicists and many others.

Undecided or still deciding on a major and future career?

If you are uncertain about your major and have questions about career planning, you are not alone. Choosing a major or career can be a very difficult decision. The exploratory studies program may be a good fit if you are unsure of your major and career focus. Entering the university in the exploratory studies program will help you gain confidence and valuable insights on majors and minors available at SDSU and future career choices. 

In addition, FOCUS 2 Career, a self-guided assessment, education and career planning program, will help you reflect on your values, interests, personality traits and skills to provide valuable insight as you explore major and career choices. SDSU students may access FOCUS 2 Career by using their student email and password. After completing FOCUS 2 Career, you may find it helpful to discuss your results with a career coach in the Office of Career Development.
