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.

As an academic university-based discipline, Chemistry stands in the centre of the sciences and is recognized as a sound basis for the kind of imaginative and disciplined thinking that has application beyond science to many other occupations and endeavours. At U of T Mississauga, we offer a Chemistry Program that 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.

The programs in Chemistry offered at U of T Mississauga provide a very suitable preparation for those who intend to prepare for professional programs such as medicine, enter the work force in industry, teach chemistry in high school, or continue into a graduate program. Students are urged to consult the faculty advisor for help in choosing the appropriate courses and programs.

It is very important to plan one's program in advance and to consult regularly (at least once a year) with a faculty advisor. It is particularly desirable to take specific courses in the year of study for which they are designed (e.g., CHM200 level courses in Year 2); serious timetable clashes are likely to arise if this advice is not followed. While some deviations from the Specialist/Major/Minor programs listed are possible, students should consult the program advisor before departing from the recommended programs.

Students should also review the Degree Requirements section prior to selecting courses
