When I transferred to SFU from college, I wanted to make the most out of being at a well established university. Studying abroad helped me appreciate how applicable the skills taught in my chemistry classes were, even on the other side of the world. I believe SFU Chemistry really emphasizes gaining skills applicable beyond chemistry, while providing a well-rounded chemistry program.

It was a scary experience at first switching my major from criminology to chemistry, but I don't regret it at all. Studying chemistry at SFU has really opened doors for me and set me up for success post-graduation. My experience here has been great and definitely enhanced by doing the co-op program. One piece of advice I can give is get to know your professors, it's interesting to see how they got where they are and most if not all are willing to help you achieve your goals too!

I transferred into the CHEM/MBB joint major program in my third year because I had realized how interconnected chemistry and biology were to each other. Humans have separated chemistry and biology into two distinct fields, but this distinction is often blurred in the natural world. I have enjoyed learning about various scientific phenomena through both a chemical and a biological perspective. It has helped me appreciate how beautifully complicated and ornate our world is.
