Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Education

Double major

Programme Type


The Chemistry major allows you to explore the nature of matter and gain an in-depth understanding and integration of concepts in chemistry through inquiry and research. Chemistry, as the “Central Science”, holds key ideas essential for solving current and future problems, such as drug design, creation of new materials for energy storage, and sustainable living. The courses encompass a broad range of topics on how matter is made, measured, and modelled. Foundations of modern chemistry, such as organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and physical chemistry, and advanced industrially relevant topics, including spectroscopy, organometallic chemistry, green chemistry, and drug design, form the core of the curriculum.
