Students Intending to Specialize in Chemistry

The point at which a high school or regional college student enters the chemistry program is governed by the student's subject knowledge. CHEM 110 and 111 are not required for the BSc degree but are available as electives to those with no chemistry knowledge or who are starting from BC high school chemistry 11. Those with BC high school chemistry 12 (or equivalent) normally start with CHEM 121. Major and honors must fulfil program requirements below. Whether majoring in chemistry or not, students may not enrol in any CHEM course for which a D grade was obtained in any prerequisite.

Advice to Students from Other Faculties

Prerequisites and corequisites cited in the Undergraduate Courses section are for those intending to specialize in science. Some may be waived for programs in the Faculties of Applied Sciences, Arts, Business Administration and Education. CHEM 110 and 111 are suitable for students with no previous training in chemistry.

Other Programs

Interdisciplinary programs in biochemistry and chemical physics are also available. Also, see "Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry". and see "Major Program"..

Cooperative Education

Mr. J.C. Simms, coop coordinator, Faculty of Science, 778.782 5347

This program combines work experience with academic studies. The student spends alternate semesters on campus and in study related jobs. A major and honors program leading to a BSc degree, and a cooperative education program incorporating four work semesters are available in chemistry and related areas. The work practicum requirements are CHEM 306, 307, 406 and 407.

To enrol, students must apply at least three months prior to the start of the semester in which they enrol in CHEM 306. Students should seek department advice as early as possible. They must obtain a minimum 2.67 CGPA to enrol and continue in the major in cooperative education. Higher averages are required for entry to and continuance in an honors program in cooperative education. For further details see "Cooperative Education"..
