Program overview

What is unique about this program at the U of M? Chemistry at the University of Manitoba is organized in traditional specializations including: Analytical, Biochemical, Inorganic, Organic, and Physical/Theoretical Chemistry. It is one of few Chemistry departments in Canada that includes Biochemistry. Research is clustered around two main themes (Health and Materials). There is close collaboration with the Department of Microbiology and the Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources and strong links to other programs in Science, Medicine and Engineering. The program is a good preparation for graduate studies and all Honours students do a Research Project. The Chemistry Department offers the only graduate program in Chemistry in the Province of Manitoba. In addition, the undergraduate programs in Chemistry and Biochemistry are the only programs in the Province of Manitoba which are accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry.
