Commonly Asked Questions About Chemistry Courses

Can I get chemistry credit for CHEM 1053 Chemistry and Our World?

Credit can be obtained for Chemistry and Our World as a science elective only. The course cannot be used towards your chemistry requirements (major or minor). You also cannot obtain credit for both CHEM 1053 and CHEM 2103 Physical Chemistry 1: Chemical Thermodynamics.

Students following an academic calandar prior to the 2015-2016 academic year can use CHEM 1053 towards a chemistry minor.

Which biochemistry course should I take?
If your program requires biochemistry with a lab
(e.g., Chemistry Honours, Chemistry Major)
Take CHEM 2713
If a program you are applying to after graduation requires biochemistry with a lab
(e.g., some medical schools require biochemistry with a lab and some do not,
check with the Health Sciences Advisor if you are unsure which you need)
Take CHEM 2713
If you (might) want to take metabolism later (CHEM 3723) Take CHEM 2713
If you require any biochemistry course (no lab requirement) Take CHEM 2713 or 2773
If you are interested in biochemistry (no lab requirement) Take CHEM 2713 or 2773
If you need a chemistry credit
(e.g., Chemistry as a 2nd Major or Minor)
Take CHEM 2713 or 2773
