Program Description: 

Pharmaceutical Chemistry is a specialization within the university's Chemistry program. Individuals interested in this specialization will apply directly to Pharmaceutical Chemistry through the Ontario Universities' Application Centre using application code DSW.

Pharmaceutical Chemistry combines the study of drug discovery and development, pharmacology, analytical techniques, and drug chemistry.  The chemical design process and evaluation of potential future medications will be a prime focus of your studies. You will apply knowledge gained from course material, hands-on lab experiences and faculty research to the pharmaceutical industry.

Admission Requirement:

Current Ontario secondary school students must complete the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six 4U or 4M credits including English (ENG4U), Advanced Functions (MHF4U), and two of Biology (SBI4U), Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U), Chemistry (SCH4U) or Physics (SPH4U). In addition, a combined minimum 70 per cent average in prerequisite math and science courses is required. It is recommended that all four of MCV4U, SBI4U, SCH4U and SPH4U be taken.

Note: Admission is competitive. The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken, and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Preference will be given to applicants with the best qualifications.


Pursue career and advanced education opportunities in a variety of areas including:

  • Biotechnology

  • Drug Discovery

  • Government or private research laboratories

  • Pharmaceutical monitoring and regulation

  • Pharmaceutics

  • Pharmadynamics

An undergraduate Chemistry degree with a specialization in Pharmaceutical Chemistry will also allow you to pursue graduate studies, including the university’s Master of Science programs in Materials Science or Applied Biosciences.
