A degree in chemistry from Trinity Western University couples biblical principles with scientific practice—and delivers a solid foundation for scientific investigation in a multitude of careers.
Chemistry is known as the central science, because it interacts with all other sciences, and it explains the world around us. A degree in chemistry can lead to a career in environmental science, nanotechnology, materials chemistry, sustainable and green chemistry, biotechnology, or a medical discipline. Through our degree program, you will acquire theoretical principles and the laboratory skills you need for a career in chemistry, or a related career in which chemistry is an asset or requirement. As part of your chemistry studies, you may make aspirin in your introductory chemistry lab or test the pond water for compounds important in water quality. Whether learning how to synthesize molecules, solving molecular structures, understanding the physical basis of chemical bonding, or understanding how a metal works when forming a mineral structure or in a catalytic biological enzyme, each class offers key principles and real-world applications. You will be trained by faculty who are experts in their individual fields and eager to share that expertise by mentoring students.
