The Chemistry Department has an excellent set of modern instruments (eg. 400 MHZ NMR), computers, and other equipment which is used by undergraduates in their laboratory courses and in research projects. This is in contrast to large universities where many instruments are reserved for graduate students only. Students at Bishop’s learn much from their extensive use of modern instrumentation and equipment, and benefit greatly from this knowledge in future employment and graduate studies.

The Chemistry Major program requires 28 three-credit one-semester courses, or their equivalent, for a total of 84 course credits minimum, plus 14 credits for associated laboratory courses, for a total of 98 credits overall. (Most 100-level and 200-level courses are 3-credit one-semester courses to be taken concurrently with a specified laboratory course of one additional credit; 6-credit two-semester courses require a laboratory course of two additional lab credits). The 84 course credits are divided as follows: 42 course credits of required chemistry courses (plus 14 lab credits), 3 course credits of biochemistry, 12 optional science credits, and 27 optional credits. Students in a minor program in another division may, with permission of the Department, increase free options to a maximum of 33 credits, and reduce science options to a minimum of 6 credits.
