Undergraduate teaching is a core mission of the department of Chemistry at McGill. We offer a unique learning environment to our students, with world-class professors, AV equipped facilities and fully renovated, innovative teaching lab. Our department offers many undergraduate programs featuring chemistry, a large list of courses and many opportunities to perform research. Check out why McGill and Chemistry should be included in your career plan and how to register.

Many of our faculty members have received Excellence in Teaching awards. In fact, the top teaching award in Science at McGill is named in honour of Leo Yaffe a professor and former Chair of the Department. This concern with education is reflected in that some of the most popular courses at McGill are Chemistry courses.
