Play with atoms. Make molecules. Explore the building blocks of matter that are at the root of all sciences at the Chemistry program offered by  Concordia University Montréal. Peer into the microscope for an intimate look at the behaviour and energy of the tiniest elements in the universe.


Program Details

As a chemist, your mastery of chemical reactions could lead to the creation of environmentally friendly materials like compostable plastics or medications that fight disease.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry  at Concordia University Montréal  features state-of-the-art labs and equipment that introduce you to techniques used in the field. Small class sizes foster strong student–professor relationships. Both Chemistry and Biochemistry students follow a core curriculum and through labs, lectures and tutorials you will:

  • Receive a solid foundation in carbon-based (organic) and non-carbon (inorganic) chemistry
  • Learn to identify compounds, analyze the structures they form, and study the mechanics and energetics of chemical reactions
  • Receive extensive training in research methodology
  • Perform original research as an undergraduate (honours and specialization students only)

The honours and specialization in Chemistry programs are accredited by the Ordre des chimistes du Québec.
