The coaching minor offers students the basic tools needed for coaching any type of sports program: first aid, caring for injuries (and preventing them), nutrition, an understanding of coaching methods and analyses of sports of interest to the student.
Chemistry explores the composition, properties, structure, and reactions of matter. The chemistry major provides students with an understanding of the unifying themes-and diversity-of natural and synthetic materials and their importance within the environment and technology.

It prepares students for entry into medical and dental careers, as well as a variety of allied health fields: nursing, physician's assistantships, physical therapy, nutrition, medical technology and more.
