Program Description

The BSc in Chemistry shares a common first year with the BSc programs in Biology, Contemporary Science, Mathematics and its Applications, and Medical Physics. Ryerson's Chemistry program offers a flexible curriculum that enables students to chart their own academic paths. Students can customize their degrees further with a minor in Biology, or a specialization in Applied Physics or Management Science.

The program is strongly applications-oriented. Lab hours account for a significant amount of learning time in every semester, supported by a solid grounding in the theory and principles of chemical science.

Chemistry co-op students find work in a variety of roles such as product development, quality control, and laboratory analytical services, in settings such as pharmaceutical companies, research laboratories, cosmetics and food industries.
