The Chemistry program of University of Toronto enables a student to complete a Specialist Degree in Chemistry over a four-year period on the campus. A Major Program is also available for students who want a significant background in Chemistry. The Chemistry faculty are moving strongly towards a distinctive teaching and research specialization in the border regions between Chemistry and Biology and also offers a Specialist Program in Biological Chemistry. Our analytical chemistry has a strong focus in this direction as well and the Department supports Specialist and Major Programs in Environmental Analysis and a Specialist Program in Forensic Science-Chemistry.

Chemistry has a vital role in modern science-based industry and in the improved material well-being and health of our society. It is being applied increasingly to the growth of our understanding of medicine, biology, materials science, geology, and many other branches of science. Chemistry also has a major role to play in solving our world-wide problems of energy conservation, environmental pollution, nuclear waste disposal and, through its important contributions to agriculture, even famine. Many of our future advances will originate from the kind of interdisciplinary research in which chemists trained to solve problems from the molecular to the bulk level must be involved.
