Why King's Chemistry Program is Unique
King's 4-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.).

Get involved with a community of active learners, working with faculty who are committed to your success through excellent teaching, mentoring, and scholarship. Be guided by award-winning faculty members in the natural sciences who are passionate about teaching and actively engaged in research projects with undergraduate students. Science is a human enterprise, and 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 healthcare professionals, teaching science, and working in the industry.
