Canadian Excellence

The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department at Laurier offers degrees with emphasis in the traditional divisions of chemistry: Analytical, Inorganic, Organic, Physical, as well as Biochemistry and Materials Chemistry.

The Department is located in the Laurier Science Building which opened in January 1995. This facility allows us to provide our students with state-of-the-art labs in which to do their training. In addition, we have a range of new equipment, instruments and computational software, all of which are used by our undergraduate students.

At Laurier we take pride in our tradition of being concerned with the teaching function of the University. Classes and labs here tend to be considerably smaller than those at other universities, allowing for a greater degree of interaction between students and professors. Many of our graduates have commented favourably on the academic benefits of this environment and we invite you to consider how significant it might be in your university studies.
