This honors module builds on the Major module in Chemistry, and allows a student to specialize in a particular area of chemistry. This module includes Chemistry 4490E, an independent research project in which the student works in one of the research laboratories in the Department of Chemistry, typically during the final year of study.
Completion of first year requirements with no failures. Students must have an average of at least 70% in 3.0 principal courses, including:
1.0 course: Chemistry 1100A/B and Chemistry 1200B (with an average in the two of at least 60%), or the former Chemistry 1050, 1020 with a minimum mark of 60%, or the former Chemistry 023 with a minimum mark of 70%;
1.0 course: (Physics 1028A/B or 1301A/B or 1501A/B) and (Physics 1029A/B or 1302A/B or 1502A/B), with an average in the two half courses of at least 60%; or the former Physics 1020, 1024, with a minimum mark of 60%;
1.0 course from:
Calculus 1000A/B or 1100A/B plus 0.5 course from Applied Mathematics 1201A/B or the former Calculus 1201A/B, Calculus 1301A/B, 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B or the former Linear Algebra 1600A/B (with an average mark in the two of at least 60%);
