Program Requirements

The MSc program in chemistry and biochemistry is normally expected to be completed in six consecutive terms. The major requirement of the program is defence of a thesis based on original research. Students are also required to complete three 0.5-credit courses, one of which can be from another graduate program at Laurier. In addition, students should register in two full-year research seminar courses and make at least one research presentation at the seminar. A minimum passing grade in a course or seminar is B−, and an overall average of B in all courses is required to earn the degree.
