Overview

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of matter, matter being anything that occupies space and has mass. This usually involves the study of the interactions of atoms and molecules. 

An experimental science, Chemistry is divided into five sub-disciplines: Analytical, Biological, Inorganic, Organic and Physical. These are of fundamental importance to a diverse array of possible careers.

Everyday materials found in every corner of your home – medicines, foodstuffs, agricultural supplies, plastics – all come from chemistry. Even your thoughts, emotions and basic bodily functions are due to chemical reactions.  

Chemical reactions are also directly involved in the causes and prevention of pollution and global warming, not to mention chemical and biological weapons. For example, did you know that Teflon was developed by Chemists as part of the Manhattan Project?

A degree in Chemistry is the foundation from which other disciplines arise.  Students will learn the theory behind and obtain practical experience in chemical analyses, organic syntheses & drug design, the biochemistry of body systems and disease states and advanced materials & catalysis.

The Chemistry Department offers three degree options, a 3-year degree, a 4-year degree and a 4-year Honours degree.

A Co-operative Education (Co-op) option is available for students enrolled in 4-Year or 4-Year Degree (Honours) degree.
