  • Objectives
    Concordia University's Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry provides students with the skills they need to launch a career in a wide range of exciting directions. Several of our programs in chemistry and biochemistry are accredited by the Québec Order of Chemists and provide the necessary hands-on laboratory training required for the future job market. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the art scientific instrumentation and our faculty includes dedicated teachers and renowned researchers. As a chemist or biochemist, you can have a front-row seat for the scientific and technological achievements that are shaping our society. You can choose to design new chemical compounds, investigate aspects of biotechnology, use computers to model molecules, surfaces, or reactions, or explore the fields of photochemistry and laser spectroscopy or materials with exciting new electrical, magnetic and optical properties. An undergraduate degree in chemistry or biochemistry enables students to assume a professional position in a hospital, in an environmental or government laboratory, or in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology or chemical industries. Others proceed to graduate school.

  • Course description
    Core Component for Chemistry — 45 credits

    A common core is made up of 15 courses in Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Spectroscopy.

    Honours in Chemistry — 60 credits*

        * 45 Core Program
        * 3 credits in Modern Spectroscopy
        * 6 credits in research Project and Thesis
        * 6 elective credits in Chemistry
        * 30 elective credits (which must include the General Education requirement)

    Included in this program is a Research Project and Thesis; a course designed to give the Honours student training and practice in research under the direction of a faculty member of the Department. A high level of performance is required to enter and remain in the Honours program.

        * 6 credits in Independent Study and Practicum
        * 6 elective credits in Chemistry

    The remaining 30 credits in electives (which must include the General Education requirement) are chosen by the student. The program includes a project course called “Independent Study and Practicum”.

    Major in Chemistry — 45 credits

        * 45 Core Program
        * 45 elective credits (which must include the General Education requirement), may be chosen from any department, some of which may take the form of a Major or a Minor in another department

    Minor in Chemistry — 24 credits

        * 24 credits in Chemistry

    Courses are chosen from the Department’s offerings to give the student a coherent view of chemistry that complements their other area of interest.

    *The Order of Chemists of Quebec has fully accredited the curricula of these programs. Upon satisfactory completion of this program, a graduate is eligible for membership in the Order. A working knowledge of French is also required for membership in the Order of Chemists of Quebec.
