Bachelor of Science (BSc) majoring in Chemistry
Your BSc programme will consist of a number of courses worth 15 points each, totalling 360 points.
You must complete the following courses plus a capstone course in your final year of study. The capstone course is a student-led project where you integrate and apply your learning to a real-world problem in your chosen major or specialisation. For Chemistry we recommend the capstone course, CHEM 399. For other capstone options, see our Capstone courses page.
15 points from:
- MATHS 108 General Mathematics 1
- MATHS 110 Mathematics for Science
- MATHS 130 Calculus
- PHYSICS 120 Advancing Physics 1
- CHEM 251 Structure and Spectroscopy
- CHEM 252 Properties and Analysis of Matter

If you began your degree prior to 2019 we recommend you seek advice to make sure you are taking the correct courses. Contact the Science Student Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doing a double major with Chemistry
If you choose to do a double major in your BSc, we recommend the following subjects to complement Chemistry: Anthropological Science, Biological Sciences, Earth Sciences, Environmental Science, Geography, Mathematics and Statistics.
Preparing for your Chemistry major
Some students will feel more prepared for our Chemistry courses if they have already studied certain subjects in high school.
Find out which school subjects will help you feel prepared by reading our Subject guide for school students.
