The following information about programs of study in Chemistry has been taken from the University Calendar. While every attempt has been made to ensure that it is accurate, you should refer to the current edition of the University Calendar for the most reliable and complete information about program requirements and course list.

The following joint honours degrees are available in the department:

  • Joint Honours in Chemistry and Earth Sciences*

  • Joint Honours in Chemistry and Applied Mathematics*

  • Joint Honours in Chemistry and Biochemistry*
