Chemistry B.Sc.

Program Information

School:Dalhousie University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Chemistry, General
Description:Chemists study the properties of atoms, molecules and ions, and how these interact with each other. Chemists make new compounds and analyze substances for their purity. Since all matter around us is composed of chemicals, understanding these helps people to protect and influence both their own lives and the environment around them. Chemical principles form the groundwork of all aspects of the physical and biological sciences, from the air, the earth and the sea, to plants, animals, insects, bacteria and viruses, to plastics, glass, concrete, steel, wood, bricks, microchips and more.

An undergraduate chemistry degree involves training in all of the major branches of chemistry. First-year classes are an intensive introduction to the field. In the second year, we teach the four traditional areas of specialization in chemistry.
