Overview

Chemistry is the branch of physical science involving the study of the composition of substances, the ways in which their properties are related to their composition, and the interaction of substances to produce new materials.

The general purpose of studies in chemistry is to increase our understanding of the structure and behaviour of the matter of our environment. A knowledge of chemistry is important to the solution of problems in important areas of the environment, medicine, and the utilization of resources.

The chemistry program at Mount Allison – fully accredited by the Canadian Society of Chemistry (CSC) – is designed to provide students with an education in the main branches of the subject, namely:

  • analytical
  • organic
  • inorganic
  • physical
  • computational

In upper years, students are offered some choice and flexibility with a curriculum that covers advanced courses, including:

  • advanced organic chemistry
  • physical organic chemistry
  • nanoscience and nanotechnology
  • physical chemistry: statistical thermodynamics, computational chemistry
  • inorganic chemistry: organometallics, physical aspects, bioinorganic, structure and bonding in main group chemistry
  • advanced quantum mechanics
  • environmental chemistry

The interdisciplinary nature of chemistry means you may also take courses in biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science, mathematics, and psychology.

The chemistry and biochemistry department emphasizes experiential learning – you will graduate with 600 to 1,200 hours of lab experience, developing important analytical and presentation skills along the way.

Research is a key component of the department’s approach. You will be encouraged to take advantage of faculty-supervised independent research, job opportunities as summer research assistants, and chances to contribute to faculty research projects, which often leads to co-authoring a paper with your professor for publication.
