Overview

Bachelor of Science (Honours) - Chemistry

Chemistry is known as the central science.

At Ontario Tech University, students will learn practical and theoretical skills related to this science. The Chemistry program covers the main divisions of chemistry, including physical, analytical, organic, inorganic and biochemistry.

Students will be able to use modern laboratories and teaching environments in state-of-the-art facilities.

The Chemistry program offers optional specializations in Chemical Biology and Pharmaceutical Chemistry.

Chemical Biology

Chemical biology, at the interface of chemistry and biology, is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary area in science. Through the synthesis and use of small molecules, probes, or chemically‑modified biological macromolecules, chemistry is applied to help answer questions of biological importance.

Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Pharmaceutical Chemistry combines the study of drug discovery and development, pharmacology, analytical techniques, and drug chemistry. The chemical design process and evaluation of potential future medications will be a prime focus.
