I. Introduction

Chemistry is often called the central science because of its relevance to so many other disciplines. Understanding the composition and properties of matter, as well as the manner in which one substance is transformed into another, is essential to the study of our physical and natural worlds. As such, chemistry is often a starting point for many different careers in science. A variety of programs are available, ranging from focused studies to interdisciplinary options to suit the interests of the student.

A chemistry degree involves considerable breadth of training in the major branches of chemistry. These include organic, inorganic, physical, analytical and biological chemistry. In addition to establishing a solid foundation in the fundamental principles of chemistry, students who undertake a chemistry degree develop essential skills that include problem solving, critical thinking, organization, data analysis, and written and oral communication. The laboratories associated with courses develop the necessary experience with laboratory procedures, equipment and safety, and serve to reinforce the concepts learned in lecture.

II. Degree Programs

The Department of Chemistry offers five main degree programs as either a BSc or BA: an Honours degree, a Combined Honours degree, a 20 Credit Major degree, a 20 Credit Double Major degree and a 15 Credit degree. Other programs include a Science Co-op degree, a 15 Credit degree concurrent with a Diploma in Engineering, a Multidisciplinary Honours degree, and a Minor in Chemistry.

The Honours degree and 20 Credit Major degree in Chemistry, as well as corresponding Co-op programs, are accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC). CSC accreditation ensures that graduates of these programs have met certain criteria concerning the quantity and quality of their instruction. It qualifies such graduates for membership in the CSC and to practice chemistry as professionals.

The sections below list the specific departmental requirements for various degree programs. In addition, students must satisfy the College of Arts and Science requirements that are outlined in the Undergraduate Calendar. Students who participated in the Dalhousie Integrated Science Program (DISP) in their first year should consult the Undergraduate Calendar for first-year course equivalencies in each course of study. For further information, it is suggested that students contact the department and speak with a Chemistry Advisor if necessary.

A. Concentrated Honours Degree (20 Credit)

This program is intended to provide a broad training in chemistry while at the same time making provision for the individual interests of students. All honours students must consult with an academic advisor and obtain approval of their course selection.

For the Honours degree, all credits in the honours subject must be passed with a grade of at least C, except CHEM 4901, which requires a minimum grade of B- for honours qualification. The minimum GPA for courses in the honours subject is 3.00.

Departmental Requirements

CHEM 1011.03/1012.03, or CHEM 1021.03/1022.03, or DISP (SCIE 15XX)

B. Combined Honours Degree (20 Credit)

Students who want to study chemistry in conjunction with another subject may wish to pursue a Combined Honours degree program. The other subject may be any discipline from the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, or may be a program in Computer Science or Environment, Sustainability and Society. Chemistry may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of honours credits), or the secondary subject. If the primary subject area is from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the degree granted will be a BA. Students are advised that some of the College of Arts and Science requirements for a Combined Honours degree differ for the BA and BSc (see Undergraduate Calendar).

Students enrolled in the Combined Honours program must have their program of study approved by advisors in both subject areas. A minimum GPA of 3.00 is required for science courses in the honours subject(s); a minimum GPA of 2.70 is required for Arts and Social Sciences courses in the honours subject.

Students must complete an Honours Qualifying Examination in one of the two subject areas with a minimum grade of B- for honours qualification. This requirement is usually, but not necessarily, completed in the primary subject area. For chemistry, this requirement is satisfied through CHEM 4901.

For chemistry as the primary subject area, the requirements are listed below

Departmental Requirements (Chemistry as Primary Subject)

CHEM 1011.03/1012.03, or CHEM 1021.03/1022.03, or DISP(SCIE 15XX)

D. Double Major Degree (20 Credit)

As with the Combined Honours degree, the Double Major degree allows students to combine a program of study in chemistry with another subject area, but with fewer constraints than the Honours program. The other subject may be any discipline from the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, or may be a program from Computer Science or Environment, Sustainability and Society. Chemistry may be the primary subject (defined as the subject with the larger number of credits), or the secondary subject. If the primary subject area is from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the degree granted will be a BA. Students are advised that some of the College of Arts and Science requirements for a Double Major degree differ for the BA and BSc (see the Undergraduate Calendar).

For chemistry as the primary subject area, the requirements are listed below

Departmental Requirements (Chemistry as Primary Subject)

For the Double Major degree, a minimum of 10 credits beyond the 1000 level are required in the two subject areas, with not less than five or more than nine in either, including two credits beyond the 2000 level in each subject. Students are advised to consult the specific requirements of the other department involved.

E. Co-operative Education Program in Chemistry

Co-operative Education in Science (Science Co-op) is a program where academic study is combined with paid career-related work experience. Students undertake three work-terms throughout their academic study terms. Science Co-op degree programs enable students to apply their knowledge directly while providing them with work experience that assists in making educated career choices. Students normally apply to join Science Co-op before their second year of study. If accepted into the Science Co-op program, students are required to register for and attend the Science Co-op Seminar Series (SCIE 2800.00) in the fall term of the year they join.

A limited number of students will be admitted into this program each year. Students must be eligible to work in Canada. The minimum GPA of 3.00 is required for admission to and continuation in the Co-op program. Students must apply before August 1, but should, however, register their intention to enter the program with the Chemistry Office in the Spring of their first year if possible. Registration details are available from the DalChem Co-op Academic Advisor or the Co-operative Education office. For more information, please see http://www.sciencecoop.dal.ca

Departmental Requirements

Students in the Co-op program will be enrolled in one of the 20 credit programs: Honours, Combined Honours, 20 Credit Major, or 20 Credit Double Major. Degree requirements are the same as outlined for these programs, plus any additional requirements (seminars, work-terms, reports, etc.) stipulated by the Co-op program. It should be noted that, because of the scheduling of work-terms, Co-op degrees normally require 4.3 years to complete.

Students must consult with the Chemistry Co-op Academic Advisor to have their program of courses and work-terms approved.

F. BSc or BA (15 credit) Minor in Chemistry

A BSc or BA (15 credit) degree program with a Minor in Chemistry is available to students in the Faculty of Science.

Departmental Requirements

CHEM 1011.03/1012.03 or CHEM 1021.03/1022.03 or SCIE 15XX
A minimum of 18 credit hours in Chemistry (BIOL) courses at the 2000 level or higher
MATH 1000.03 and one of MATH 1010.03 or 1060.03

G. Minor in Chemistry

Students in other 20 credit degree programs may choose to include a Minor in Chemistry in their program. Requirements are outlined in the College of Arts and Science Minors section of this Calendar.

H. Minors available to students in Chemistry

Minor programs allow students to develop subject specialities in addition to their major or honours subjects. Minors in other subjects are normally added to a four-year Major or Concentrated Honours program (including co-op programs).

Students in a 20 credit BSc or BA program in Chemistry may choose to include a Minor selected from the list of approved Minors located in the College of Arts and Science section. Note that courses counted toward your Major or Honours program cannot be used to fulfill the requirements of a Minor program.

I. Diplomas, Certificates, and Language Proficiency Certificates

In combination with a BSc or BA in Chemistry, there are certificates and diplomas that can be obtained to emphasize areas of proficiency. Courses counted toward a Major, Honours or Minor program may also be used to fulfill the requirements of a Certificate. For a complete list and details refer to the College of Arts and Science Degree Requirements.

Certificates offered by the Department of Chemistry include:

In rare cases, students may want to study chemistry in conjunction with two or more other subject areas. For these students, the College of Arts and Science offers a Multidisciplinary Honours BSc degree program that may be appropriate. (see the Undergraduate Calendar for more details). Because of the complex nature of this program, students who are considering the Multidisciplinary Honours BSc should consult with an advisor in each of the departments involved to ensure that their program of study is acceptable.

III. Course Descriptions

Undergraduate courses that are regularly offered by the Chemistry Department are briefly described in this section. More detailed information can be found on the departmental web site at http://chemistry.dal.ca. Students should note the following.

Not all courses are offered every year. Please consult the Academic Timetable for the details of courses offered in a particular academic year.
The first digit of the course number is the year of a student's program that a course would typically be taken, but this is not meant to be restrictive if a student has the necessary prerequisites or permission of the instructor. For example, a 3000 level course can be taken in the fourth year and 4000 level course can be taken in the third year.
The second digit of the course number defines the general sub-discipline:

0 = General Chemistry 5 = Interdisciplinary
1 = Inorganic Chemistry 6 = Biological Chemistry 2 = Analytical Chemistry 8,9 = Research Classes 3 = Physical Chemistry 4 = Organic Chemistry

The extension following the course number (e.g., XXXX.03) indicates the number of credit hours assigned to the course (e.g., three credit hours). Note that six credit hours are equivalent to one credit.
All chemistry courses, unless stated otherwise, have a minimum grade requirement of C- for their prerequisite chemistry courses. Students with grades below C- in the prerequisite chemistry courses can only register with the permission of the instructor for the course.
Unless stated otherwise, the minimum grade requirement for credit in a chemistry course is a D, except for Honours programs, where the minimum grade requirement for chemistry credit is a C (B- for Honours Qualifying Examination).

Chemistry Resource Centres

First-Year and Advanced Chemistry Resource Centres are located in Rooms 122 and 115, respectively. The former is staffed with advanced undergraduate and graduate students to help with both lab and course material. First-year students are encouraged to make use of the Concept Room, which is located in the First-Year Resource Centre. Here, first-year Instructors will be available at regularly scheduled times to provide aid with course material in a small group or one-on-one atmosphere.

The First-Year Chemistry Resource Centre also houses a number of computers with chemistry-specific programs for students to use. Additionally, there is a selection of resource materials such as molecular model kits and reference texts available to students.
