    Course Summary

    Chemistry is the study of all matter at the atomic level, its properties, and how it interacts to form more complex structures. You will learn all about the core areas of chemistry in this program: theoretical chemistry, physical chemistry, organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry and analytical chemistry. 

    Saint Mary’s University offers several degrees in Chemistry, ranging from a minor to a BSc with Honours:

    • A Minor in Chemistry
    • A Concentration in Chemistry
    • A Major in Chemistry
    • An Honours Degree in Chemistry
    • A Double Major in Chemistry and one other field
    • A Double Honours Degree in Chemistry and one other field 

    Co-operative Education option

    Any of the university’s BSc degrees can be taken with co-op content. This will see you doing paid work as you learn. 

    Overseas and Exchange options

    Saint Mary’s Biology students will be able to sign up for a range of academic exchange programs with the university’s partner institutions in Africa, South America, Asia or Europe.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
