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.

The 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. Learn how to describe, visualize, interact with, and appreciate the molecular world from leading professors in the field and conduct extensive laboratory research projects.

King's four-year chemistry program is nationally accredited by the Chemical Institute of Canada and, after work experience, can lead to designation in Alberta as a Professional Chemist (P.Chem.).
