Unique Features of King's Chemistry Program

The 4-year chemistry program at The King's University is nationally accredited by the Chemical Institute of Canada and can lead, after obtaining work experience, to designation in Alberta as a Professional Chemist (P.Chem.). Students will experience a community of active learners, working with faculty committed to your success through excellent teaching, mentoring and scholarship. Students are guided by award-winning faculty members in the natural sciences, who are passionate about teaching and actively engaged in research projects with undergraduate students. You'll learn that science is a human enterprise, and that scientific processes occur in historical, social and religious contexts.

Graduates leave with a strong chemistry background, mathematical skills, the ability to work independently, excellent oral and written communication skills, and problem-solving abilities. These are all desired qualifications for Canadian chemists, as indicated by Human Resources and Development Canada (Human Resources and Development Canada).

You can find King’s chemistry alumni in graduate schools across Canada, practicing as medical doctors and other health care professionals, teaching science, and working in industry.
