Medicinal Chemistry

Honours unit of study table (Table A)

Honours in Medicinal Chemistry is a one-year component embedded within the Bachelor of Advanced Studies. Students undertake a 36-credit point research project and complete two 6-credit point coursework units that will aid in the development of their fundamental research and communication skills.

Honours in Medicinal Chemistry is available to students with a major in chemistry or a cognate area that is relevant to the project. Admittance into the program is determined by the Faculty of Science as well as the Honours coordinator.
