Undergraduate Courses

Generally, students admitted in the Life Sciences and Physical & Mathematical Sciences streams include chemistry in their first year, in addition to physics, math and biology courses. CHM151Y is the course that is strongly recommended for all students who will be following one of the chemistry specialist programs and who will be including a substantial amount of chemistry in their degree such as those in chemistry major program. The combination of CHM138H and CHM139H is recommended for students who intend to take programs in the Life or Health Sciences that do not require a large amount of chemistry. It is also the most appropriate course for students applying for entry into professional programs.

The second-year courses introduce the students to their chosen field of studies in biological, physical, organic, inorganic materials and analytical chemistry.

The third-year courses offer the students a wide variety of selection to concentrate on their chosen field of specialization by enhancing their understanding of the chemistry in the lectures and strengthening their practical experience in the labs.

The fourth-year courses cement the student understanding and practical experience to prepare them for employment upon graduation or pursue independent work in graduate studies.
