The Chemistry department is comprised of dedicated faculty members and laboratory demonstrators who have academic and industrial expertise in a wide range of specialties, covering organic chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and environmental chemistry.

 We pride ourselves on our ability to provide a quality education in a small classroom setting of 24 to 40 students, one that enables instructors to interact with students on an individual basis. The extensive facilities at Langara, including current model spectrometric and chromatographic instrumentation, and the intensive laboratory sessions coupled to each course, ensure that students graduating from our programs will have already acquired practical hands-on experience, and also would be well prepared to pursue further studies.

 Special Note: 

For the Fall 2022 semester, all chemistry course sections are scheduled to have on-campus laboratories and final exams.  Some sections will have on-line lectures.  Please read the registration guide carefully, and write to us if you have any questions.  All on-campus lecture classes and laboratories will be fully compliant with provincial health and safety advisories, and operated with a high standard of care regarding virus transmission.
