Applied & Joint Programs

Chemistry Future Students


Many of us learn best by doing. That’s why The University of Winnipeg has teamed up with other schools in Manitoba to offer joint programs that blend academic and practical experience. Several of these programs include a co-operative option, which allows you the chance to “try on” a career though work experience, improve interpersonal and employment skills, and develop valuable contacts in your field. This combination of skills and experience provides you with the flexibility you need to succeed in an ever-changing job market. The Department of Chemistry also participates in the interdisciplinary major in Environmental Studies. 


Applied Chemistry

Chemists are at the forefront of unravelling the mysteries of the most complex chemical systems. If you’re interested in understanding the structure of matter and how it behaves on a molecular level, you may be drawn to the field of chemistry. In Applied Chemistry, you can choose from either a traditional program or a co-operative option that integrates academic studies with 12 months of paid work experience in chemistry-related positions.

This program is specifically designed to serve the needs of health and service industries in Manitoba. Courses in Applied Environmental Science cover such topics as waste management, soil-vegetation systems and environmental ethics. You can choose between a four-year and five-year program. In the five-year program, you’ll have the option of completing a co-operative work term consisting of a minimum of 16 weeks of full-time, paid work experience.
