Experiential Learning is a key Component of the Department’s Approach
Experiential learning and hands on research experiences are the hallmarks of the Honours programs in chemistry and biochemistry. The Department offers many lecture/lab and lab-only courses that give students the chance to apply what they’ve learned in class to experiments at the bench.
Students are also 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.
Both the Chemistry and Biochemistry 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 and fourth years.
The Programs are flexible to allow students to pursue their interests while gaining a balanced education.
