Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.

Students have the opportunity to complete a minor in chemistry in order to build a secondary area of expertise in support of their program or other areas of interest.
