Program Information

School:McMaster University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Chemistry, General
Description:The Honours Chemistry program consists of four options: a core and three specializations. The core option consists of a specified set of basic requirements but otherwise allows a wide choice of other courses, including those from outside the Faculty of Science. The opportunity is therefore available for interdisciplinary studies, possibly leading to a Minor in another subject. Students may also wish to follow one of several specializations which are more appropriate for graduate studies in Chemistry or Biochemistry.

The options currently available are: Chemistry (Core), Advanced Materials Specialization, Molecular Science Specialization, and Origins Research Specialization.
