How do you like your chemistry?
Chemistry is a fundamental science that helps us understand the building blocks of matter and life. Chemists work to discover new materials and processes that can improve our lives. As a student interested in chemistry, you can enroll in programs and courses in all the main areas of chemistry, including analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, theoretical, and environmental chemistry. Concentrations in Nanotechnology and Chemical Toxicology re available. Extensive lab experience is offered, helping you round out your studies with practical experience.
Award-winning teachers deliver courses that offer a combination of interactive lectures, laboratory work, field-based experiential learning opportunities like Co-op, and research experiences. Entrance scholarships and bursaries can help you get started.
