Undergraduate Studies

Chem Grads 2009

The Department of Chemistry offers degree programs in the following areas:

  • B.Sc. Major in Chemistry, including an Honours Chemistry program.
  • B.Sc. Major in  Environmental Chemistry, including an Honours Environmental Chemistry program.
  • In concert with the Department of Biology, a B.Sc. Major in Biochemistry with two options: General Biochemistry, and Medical Biochemistry. An Honours option is available for each option.

Undergraduate students in the Department of Chemistry at UBC Okanagan have the best of both worlds. As students at the University of British Columbia, they have access to resources, facilities, and infrastructure usually hard to find at smaller schools, such as online access to scientific journals, brand new classrooms and laboratories, and high end analytical equipment. But as students at the Okanagan campus, they experience these things a more intimate learning environment, with a greater diversity of opportunities. Our students log more lab hours and gain more hands-on experience with instrumentation, they develop close working relationships in the teaching and research labs with world class research faculty, and can gain valuable work experience as teaching assistants.

Undergraduates interested in serving as undergraduate teaching assistants should seek information on the Employment Opportunities page. Undergraduates interested in pursuing opportunities for undergraduate research should see the Research page.
