Overview

If you are a student in the Chemistry Major program, the BSc. Geochemistry Minor will allow you to explore how chemistry can be applied to problems in the Earth and Planetary Sciences.

Earth and Planetary Science is a broad discipline that allows you to study the solid Earth, its hydrosphere, and our neighbouring terrestrial planets. It is a multidisciplinary field in which the principles of chemistry, physics, and mathematics are applied to real world problems in order to understand how planets work. It examines these issues in the context of the past, present, and future.
