Chemistry, often called the central science, is concerned with the study of all forms of matter and its transformations. Chemistry impacts our lives in so many ways and chemists are currently working hard to improve our health care, conserve natural resources, protect the environment and develop new and better materials for such things as clothing, transportation and shelter. Chemistry is a fascinating subject which still surprises us, and wonderful discoveries are no doubt still waiting to be made.
The Department of Chemistry & Geoscience will guide you through a journey of learning in one of several interrelated educational paths in molecular, inorganic and/or earth sciences. The department's offerings include the full set of university transfer, first and second year chemistry, engineering chemistry, geoscience, biochemistry, immunology, and biotechnology.
Diploma in Arts and Science Studies
The Diploma in Arts and Science Studies, is a new credential from the School of Arts and Science. You will need to complete 20 university transfer courses (60 credits). At least 14 courses must be offered by the School of Arts and Science. This gives you the flexibility and freedom to study courses of your choosing. More info...
Explore your interests! University Transfer has the flexibility to allow you to take courses part-time or full-time with courses starting throughout the year. This is an excellent choice if you've not yet decided if Chemistry will be your focus. Your course can be transferred to a Diploma in Arts and Science Studies or an Associate of Science Degree but it also allows you to do upgrading courses at the same time. More info...
