The Honours Chemistry and Physics programe at University of Windsor is a good choice if you want to attack problems of a chemical nature with a solid understanding of the underlying physics.


Physical chemistry or chemical physics leads to the development of materials such as superconductors, luminescent materials and industrial catalysts, as well as synthetic methods (e.g. pharmaceutical industry) and novel, organized structures with the potential to be utilized as “nano-machines”. 

Program Description 

BSc Honours Chemistry and Physics (with and without thesis) at University of Windsor is a good choice if you want to specialize in physical chemistry or chemical physics. This program has an enhanced focus on physical chemistry and physics. It explores the characterization of matter using various types of spectroscopy, theoretical methods, and other instrumentation such as microscopes, lasers and X-ray diffractometers. Students can take advanced courses in both physics and chemistry. 

Students can choose the Materials Stream to gain more expertise in the chemistry of synthetic and bio-materials. Some courses are also available online that are part of an online Certificate in Materials Chemistry. Students can also participate in our work integrated learning option that involves a paid 8-12 month internship at industry (pharmaceutical, agricultural, chemical, etc.) and organizations (governmental, communal, health, etc.).

This program is different from a double major. Students wishing to double major in Physics and Chemistry should enrol in the Combined Honours Program.

Career Paths
