    Course Summary

    An MSc in Chemistry from the he University of Guelph really benefits from the staff and reputation of two of Canada’s top rated universities. The program is delivered by the Chemistry departments of both Guelph and Waterloo Universities, and both contribute truly world class educators and researchers to the program. Even your examination committee can be formed from the faculty of both institutions.

    The university’s teaching staff are heavily engaged in many kinds of relevant research, and bring a great deal of industry experience to the table. As a result, you can expect to learn very specialised skills which will be relevant both to advanced study at the PhD level or to founding a career in several different industries upon graduation.

    You can choose from several MSc program streams, including:

    • Thesis-based options
    • Co-operative education options
    • Full time study
    • Part time study
    • Direct transition to the PhD program on graduation

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. 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.
