Faculty of Science - Chemistry

This honours module builds on the Major module in Chemistry, and allows a student to specialize in a particular area of chemistry. This module includes Chemistry 4491E, 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.
