Study Chemistry at King's

The chemistry degree at King's provides instruction from leading professors in the field and opportunities for chemistry research in a program that is fully accredited by the Chemical Institute of Canada.

Chemistry is about creativity. Chemists design and create new molecules and explore their properties and reactivities. Putting this creative knowledge to work, chemists team up with biologists, pharmacologists, engineers, material scientists, and environmental professionals to reveal the secrets of life’s building blocks.

Learn how to describe, visualize, interact with, and appreciate the molecular world from leading professors in the field and conduct extensive laboratory research projects. Recent King's chemistry graduates have received prestigious fellowships to support their admission into leading graduate schools. Others have entered professional programs such as medicine and dentistry, found employment in chemistry and environmental laboratories, or have gone on to teach science and chemistry.

The Chemistry program lets students come to a deeper understanding of the molecular world so they can engage with molecules to bring healing to a damaged and hurting world.

This four-year degree is fully accredited by the Chemical Society of Canada. The department has gained national and international prominence and awards for the quality of its teaching and research.
