This program is offered in conjunction with the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

The BSc Honours program in Chemical Physics has been suspended as of Fall 2016. Students interested in this program should seek advice from a program advisor in the Undergraduate Science Centre. Students interested in this area should consider completing a combined degree or minor.


Admission to this program has been suspended as of Fall 2016.

Student Standing
  • Any student in an Honours program is subject to the provisions for continuation in an Honours program, Subsections 3.2 and 3.4C.
  • GPA requirements for Honours programs

Students in Chemical Physics must present honours-level performance at the academic review completed after each winter semester. Details on the honours review is found in section A.2 of this calendar. After consultation, students who do not qualify for continuation will be moved into either Chemistry or Physics degrees unless they indicate otherwise and meet the admission requirements for their chosen program. Students with a GPA of less than 2.000 are subject to the provisions of 3.7 Student Standing, B. Performance Review, Probationary Status and Dismissal.
