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 secrets of life’s building blocks. The chemistry program lets students come to a deeper understanding of the molecular world, so they can engage with molecules to bring about healing to a world that is damaged and hurting.

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

The chemistry program is fully accredited by the Chemical Institute of Canada. The department has gained national and international prominence and awards for the quality of its teaching and research.
