Chemistry plays a leading role in our world and our lives. Focused on understanding matter and energy and their interactions with each other, this essential science is a part of everything we do, from creating new, useful materials and products to protecting the environment and fighting disease. Ryerson graduates in this dynamic field are involved in a range of exciting research areas and applications, from synthesizing new organic and inorganic materials, to pursuing a variety of opportunities in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, computational chemistry, proteomics and molecular biology.
This program selects students on the basis of academic achievement/grades only. Additional non-academic requirements are not required for admission consideration.
