Chemistry (BSc)

Choosing First Year Courses

Establishing the best first year schedule helps you set the foundation for a successful Acadia experience. To help with this, your department has recommended the courses you should register for in your first year. To make the process even easier for you, many departments will pre-register you for your required courses. Most programs allow you to choose and self-register for at least one elective in your first year. Academic advising is available at any stage should you need it.

Important Notes

You will already be registered for all of the above courses, except for the electives.

For elective courses, we strongly encourage you to take 6h from the Faculty of Arts and 6h from the Faculty of Pure and Applied Science (e.g. BIOL 1113/1123, COMP 1113/1123, GEOL 1013/1023, PSYC 1013/1023 OR NUTR 1503/1323).

If you are interested in a career in the Health Sciences, we advise you to take BIOL 1113/1123 and ENGL 1413/1423 (or ENGL 1406).

The following courses may also complement a career in Chemistry: BUSI 1703, ECON 1013/1023.
