School: Concordia University
Faculty: Faculty of Arts and Science
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op; Honours
Field of Study: Chemistry, General
Description: Play with atoms. Make molecules. Explore the building blocks of matter that are at the root of all sciences. Peer into the microscope for an intimate look at the behaviour and energy of the tiniest elements in the universe. As a chemist, your mastery of chemical reactions could lead to the creation of environmentally friendly materials like compostable plastics or medications that fight disease.

Our Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry features state-of-the-art labs and equipment that introduce you to techniques used in the field. Small class sizes foster strong student–professor relationships. The Chemistry Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks. As a Co-op student, you will work for firms where you may: develop new chemical processes used to make drugs, extract, purify and perform quantitative analysis on metabolites in biological samples, or conduct tests to predict long-term performance of adhesives.
