1. Why would I choose an honours program?
Honours or four-year programs have many advantages including offering more courses in your chosen field and access to co-op and internship opportunities where available, as well as preparing you for graduate studies, professional programs, and employment.

2. When do I have to declare a major?
You will need to choose a major by the end of your first year. Course registration is generally easier for students who have declared a major, so even if you’re not 100 percent certain, it is best to choose a major upfront and change it later if you need to.

3. Where can I go for academic advice? 
Students in Chemistry, Food Science & Nutrition, and Nanoscience can email the Undergraduate Advisor at robert.burk@carleton.ca, drop by our main office (Steacie Bldg, Room 203) during regular office hours or email us at chemistry@carleton.ca.
