What program should you follow? What courses should you choose?
There are a number of choices for students, so it is important to make a good choice with your future in mind. To learn about the various programs, here are some resources:
- a downloadable chart that summarizes the possibilities of Undergraduate Degree Programs Involving Chemistry.
- a Credit Requirements by Type chart that lists the different amounts of Chemistry and other subjects required by each degree program,
- brief descriptions of each of the programs are under the Degree Programs heading on your left,
- detailed listings of the requirements for each program are under the Degree Requirements.
When deciding on a program, the following should be kept in mind:
- For easy transferability between programs, the first two years of the Specialized Honours BSc in Chemistry degree are identical to those of the Materials Chemistry option, the 4-year Analytical Chemistry option and the Honours Major BSc degree, and virtually identical to those of the Honours Major-Minor BSc degree, the Honours Double Major BSc degree, the 3-year BSc degree and the 3-year Analytical Chemistry option.
- Similarly, the first two years of the Pharmaceutical & Biological Chemistry Stream are very similar to those of the Specialized Honours BSc in Biochemistry degree.
- Different academic standards are required for continuation in Honours and non-Honours degree programs. [Details]
- Some programs are recommended for those who may wish to proceed to a post-graduate degree in chemistry. [Details]
