Program Information

School: McGill University
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Chemistry, General
Physics, General
Description: This is a specialized and demanding program intended primarily, although not exclusively, for students with a theoretical bias who are interested in working in fields of study at the crossroads of physical chemistry and physics. The program will prepare students for either theoretical or experimental graduate work in departments where there is an emphasis on such cross-disciplinary areas as condensed matter physics, chemical physics, or material science.

A student whose average in the required and complementary courses in any year falls below a GPA of 3.00, or whose grade in any individual required or complementary course falls below a C (in both the final examination and supplemental examination if taken), may not register in this Joint Honours program the following year, or graduate with the Joint Honours degree, except with permission of both Departments.
