Major Program Strengths
This major takes advantage of our strength in the Biological Sciences whilst maintaining a strong chemistry-oriented understanding of the molecular basis for biological structure and function.
1 - A program at the interface of chemistry and biology, one of the most exciting and rapidly growing interdisciplinary areas in science.
2 - Designed for students who want the excitement of the biological sciences coupled with the depth of understanding, and the wide applicability of the physical sciences.
3 - Aimed at providing opportunities and skills for students interested in careers which cross traditional boundaries in the chemical and biological sciences, and offering the flexibility which comes with a solid understanding of chemistry, the central science.
4 - A high quality laboratory experience with a focus on organic synthesis and analytical tools of relevance to both chemistry and biology.
5 - Co-operative education opportunities to gain work experience and complement your academic training.
6 - The option to select hands-on training in pharmaceutical analysis, pharmacology and applied toxicology biopharmaceuticals through Seneca College.
7 - Learning Centres for 1st year courses and laboratories. Small classes after 1st year, with plenty of access to faculty and graduate TA's for assistance.
