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 from: Chemistry 1301A/B and 1302A/B (with an average of at least 60%), or the former Chemistry 1100A/B and 1200B (with an average of at least 60%) or the former Chemistry 1050 with a minimum mark of 60%.
1.0 course from: (Physics 1028A/B or 1301A/B or 1501A/B) and (Physics 1029A/B or 1302A/B or 1502A/B), with an average of at least 60%; or the former Physics 1020 or 1024 with a minimum mark of 60%.
1.0 course from:
Calculus 1000A/B, 1500A/B or the former 1100A/B and one of Applied Mathematics 1201A/B or the former Calculus 1201A/B, Applied Mathematics 1413, Calculus 1301A/B, 1501A/B, Mathematics 1600A/B or the former Linear Algebra 1600A/B, Mathematics 1225A/B or 1229A/B.
