Overview

Chemistry is the study of the composition and properties of matter, the transformations they undergo, and the associated energies. 

Chemists are at the forefront of unravelling the mysteries of the most complex chemical systems. If you are interested in understanding the structure of matter and how it behaves on a molecular level, you may be drawn to the field of chemistry. Chemical science plays a role in dealing with many challenges today, from pollution and the scarcity of fresh water, to food production and the development of vaccines and drugs. 

The Chemistry Department at UWinnipeg offers research and work opportunities through summer jobs and a fourth year “Research Projects” course. The skills gained through these research and work opportunities are valuable in future employment and for admission to graduate and professional schools. 

Sample Careers

As a “central science,” chemistry provides excellent preparation for a career in science as a teacher, a professional (e.g. medical doctor, pharmacist), a technician, or a researcher/academic. 

Graduates of the Chemistry program at University of Winnipeg  may find employment in federal or provincial government laboratories, industrial laboratories, hospital laboratories, or with pharmaceutical or chemical companies.
