No changes in 2012-13 for continuing students.

For new and transfering students, two significant changes will take effect:

  • Students in all BSc programs joined in 2012-2013 will need at least 3 credits at the 2000 level or higher in another science discipline, as part of an overall requirement for 24 science credits outside the major.

This will affect new and transfering students in the BSc, Honours Major BSc and Specialized Honours BSc in Chemistry and may also affect Honours Major-Minor BSc if the minor is not a science. This will not affect the Specialized Honours BSc - Pharmaceutical and Biological Chemistry stream, nor the Honours Double Major BSc, as those already require this, nor anyone already in a Chemistry degree program.

  • Students in all Honours BSc programs joined in 2012-2013 will need at least 12 credits at the 4000 level.

This will affect new and transfering students in the Honours Major BSc, Double-Major BSc and Major-Minor BSc. The other degree programs already require this. This will not affect anyone already in a Chemistry degree program

  • The 1000- and 2000-level Chemistry requirements for all Chemistry degrees will become the same as of Fall 2013. Students in the Pharmaceutical & Biological stream are encouraged to take SC/BIOL/BCHM 2020 3.0 instead of SC/CHEM 2050 4.0. This will not affect anyone already in a Chemistry degree program unless they wish to graduate under the requirements in effect at the time of graduation.
  • The Chemistry requirements for the Honours Major, Honours Major-Minor and Honours Double Major BSc programs will become identical as of Fall 2013. This will not affect anyone already in a Chemistry degree program unless they wish to graduate under the requirements in effect at the time of graduation.
