Our commitment to hands-on learning makes our graduates especially skilled and adept scientists. Our Chemistry department that you have been accepted into is one of the best graduate schools in North America; in fact, graduates report that you are better prepared than many of your fellow students in other institutions graduate programs.

Our graduates are highly sought after. Brock graduates are developing new drugs at DuPont-Merck, NovaPharm, Salk Institute of Biotechnology, Parke-Davis, Johnson & Johnson; and are working on chemical research at Enbridge-Consumers Gas, Custom Pharmaceutical, Symyx Technologies, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, and many more.

As an Undergraduate you are key partners in our research activities, participating in special research courses and paid summer research. You might even have the opportunity to co-author a publication.

The Chemistry Co-op program allows you to combine academic and work terms, and gain valuable work experience. As a co-op student, your degree will be completed in four and one-half to five years and will include three four-month work terms. You’ll complete two to four academic terms before beginning your first work placement.
