Chemists are at the forefront of unravelling the mysteries of the most complex chemical systems. If you are interested in understanding the structure of matter and how it behaves on a molecular level, you may be drawn to the field of chemistry. Chemical science plays a role in dealing with many challenges today, from pollution and the scarcity of fresh water, to food production and the development of vaccines and drugs.

At The University of Winnipeg you can specialize in analytical, organic, inorganic, or physical chemistry; or in biochemistry.

The Chemistry Department at UWinnipeg offers research and work opportunities through summer jobs and a fourth year “Research Projects” course. The skills gained through these research and work opportunities are valuable in future employment and for admission to graduate and professional schools.

Career Possibilities

As a “central science,” chemistry provides excellent preparation for a career in science as a teacher, a professional (e.g. medical doctor, pharmacist), a technician, or a researcher/academic. Chemistry graduates may find employment in federal or provincial government laboratories, industrial laboratories, hospital laboratories, or with pharmaceutical or chemical companies.

What our students say

“The small size of the Chemistry department allowed me to gain access to the professors, get valuable hands-on experience in the labs as both a student and a lab teaching assistant, and participate in the organization of an undergraduate chemistry conference.”

Angele Maki (BSc Chemistry), who completed her PhD in Chemistry at Stanford University.
