The Department of Chemistry offers several routes into a B.Sc. degree specializing in chemistry:
The honours degree provides a comprehensive background for students and is essential for those who plan to pursue a career in chemistry or a related subject. This degree program is accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry, and provides the academic credential for registration as a Professional Chemist.
The 4 year degree is a more flexible program incorporating a core of chemistry courses with some room for additional courses of interest outside of the field of specialization. This degree program is accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry, and provides the academic credential for registration as a Professional Chemist.
B. Sc. Three-year
The 3-year degree offers a basic understanding of chemistry.
The double honours degree allows for a concentration in chemistry along with a variety of second subjects of interest, including Biochemistry or Physics.
Minor in Chemistry
It is possible for a student to major in another discipline and minor in chemistry. The minor in chemistry provides students with a knowledge of the basic principles of chemistry.
Complete descriptions of these Chemistry programs can be found in the University of Saskatchewan's Calendar pages on Chemistry.
