Specialized Honours in Chemistry

Minimum GPA required: 5.5 Courses Required Suggested Study Plans

The Specialized Honours Degree is the premier program in Chemistry offered at York University and the program into which most students will enter. It is a four-year honours program specializing in chemistry (with at least 68 CHEM credits) and providing a solid grounding in various sub-fields of chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic and physical/theoretical chemistry as well as the opportunity to focus on subjects in one or more of these areas. The program also includes requirements and options in computer science, mathematics and physics, and general education requirements in such areas as the Humanities and Social Sciences.

For easy transferability between programs, the first two years of this program are, since 2013, identical to all other Chemistry degrees except those of the Pharmaceutical and Biological stream and the Biochemistry programs, which have additional requirements in Biology and Biochemistry.

Two options are available for those wishing some specialization in Materials Chemistry or in Analytical Chemistry option.

This program provides an ideal preparation for graduate studies in Chemistry.
