  • Objectives
    Chemistry is all around us. Often called the central science, chemistry examines the processes that produce our food, clothes, medicines, and hundreds of materials we use every day. The Department of Chemistry at Carleton University combines expertise in all the main areas of chemistry, including biochemistry and environmental chemistry. If you are considering studies in Chemistry — consider Carleton.
  • Practical experience
    At Carleton, we believe you should gain real research experience as soon as possible. That is why, in addition to your regular course work, we provide you with a number of valuable hands-on opportunities to assist faculty members with research and teaching. Summer research scholarships are available after each undergraduate year and, faculty members regularly hire undergraduate students as summer research assistants. As a senior undergraduate student, you may also obtain a paid position as a laboratory demonstrator and marker to assist faculty, technical staff, and graduate students in the operation of first- and second-year labs.
