    Course Summary

    The University of Lethbridge offers several different Chemistry degrees at the Baccalaureate level. These include a Bachelor of Science (BSc) a Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc) or a combined BSc in Biological Science and either Management or Education. You’ll gain a deep understanding of food chemistry, nanomaterials and the process of catalysis. 

    There are 5 specialisms within the field of chemistry, and you will learn the basics of each. These include:

    • Analytical Chemistry (detection and measurement)
    • Organic Chemistry (carbon compounds and the building blocks of life)
    • Inorganic Chemistry (everything that is not ‘organic’)
    • Physical Chemistry (How and why matter behaves as it does)
    • Theoretical Chemistry (The principles that underlie chemical reactions)

    When combined with Education content you could prepare to teach Chemistry or a range of related topics. When combined with a Management degree, you could be on your way to a leadership career in the chemical or pharmaceutical industries, among many others. 

    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.

    With a high enough GPA, you’ll be able to take the ‘Undergraduate Thesis’ module. Successful completion of a thesis will result in your degree including the ‘Honours’ designation, a prerequisite for many advanced MSc programs. 

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Lethbridge uses a range of learning and teaching techniques to convey the skills and background knowledge you’ll need to succeed in an academic, scientific or commercial career. They vary depending on the subject of the module but you can expect a great deal of time in lecture halls, working in small groups on skills tutorials, and of course co-operative educational opportunities. You’ll also do a great deal of field and lab-work.  

    Career Possibilities

    A degree in the Chemistry can lead to many different careers. Some students continue on to an MSc or even PhD program at Lethbridge or a range of other fine universities, but some go directly into the job market. Recent graduates have accepted roles in agricultural chemistry, chemical analysis, consulting, drug development, environmental science, flavour chemistry, food technology, forensic science, industrial chemical sales, oil sands technology, the oil & gas industry or the pharmaceutical industry.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 4 year Baccalaureate degree, a second degree or a combined degree.

    To apply, you’ll need to have a secondary school diploma which includes at least one language arts course, or the international equivalent. Other qualifications may be accepted. 

    All classes are taught in English unless otherwise specified. International students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
