The 4 yr. BSc in Chemistry program is accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC). The CSC accredits undergraduate chemistry programs in Canadian universities, to ensure that educational programs have the potential to prepare graduates to practice their profession in a competent scientific manner. It also helps to maintain national standards of education by providing an external audit service for programs, and by promoting the portability of the qualifications of graduates from such programs.MAT 120 (Linear Algebra I), MAT 214 (Intermediate Calculus I), and an additional 3 credits of Physics are strongly recommended.
42–60 credits required, to include:
- CH 101 (Introductory University Chemistry I) and CH 102 (Introductory University Chemistry II)
- CH 261 (Basic Organic Chemistry I) and CH 263 (Basic Organic Chemistry II)
- CH 211 (Quantitative Analytical Chemistry I) and CH 213 (Quantitative Analytical Chemistry II)
- CH 271 (Chemical Thermodynamics) and CH 373 (Physical Properties and Dynamics of Chemical Systems)
- CH 331 (Introductory Inorganic Chemistry) and CH 332 (Basic Inorganic Chemistry II: Transition Metals)
- CH 325 (Professional Practice in Chemistry)
- 6 credits unsppecified 400-level CH courses
- BIOCH200 (Introductory Biochemistry)
- 0–18 credits unspecified senior-level CH courses.
In addition to the above, students must complete:
- 3 credits of PHY courses.
- MAT 114 (Elementary Calculus I) and MAT 115 (Elementary Calculus II)
- BES 107 (Introduction to Cell Biology) or BES 108 (Organisms in Their Environment)
- 6 credits of courses offered by the Departments of Social Sciences or Psychology (CNST, ECO, HIS, INDG, POEC, PSCI, PSY, SOC).
