Research is a key component of the department’s approach.

Students are provided with numerous opportunities to carry out independent research and to work with faculty on their research projects, even co-authoring scientific papers with them.

The programs are designed to provide students in all programs with a solid foundation in the first two years with paths for specialization in the third in and fourth years.

The programs allow for considerable flexibility to allow students to pursue their interests while gaining a balanced education.

Experiential learning and hands on research experiences are the hallmarks of the Honours programs in chemistry and biochemistry.
