Undergraduate studies

Find your edge in UVic's Department of Chemistry.

Why study chemistry at UVic?

Learn about the "stuff" that surrounds you. Whether it's paint, perfume, pills or pizza, the materials of modern life are chemicals. In chemistry, you'll use your head and your hands—sometimes it's colourful, sometimes it's smelly, and always it's interesting!

Take relevant courses in updated lab facilities and work with award-winning faculty members on interesting research projects to develop new technologies, tackle environmental issues or reshape the way we think about fluids and materials.
