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 Spring 2022 semester, our intention is that Langara chemistry will have almost completely returned to in-person on-campus instruction.  There will be one section of general chemistry I with on-line lectures, and it will have its on-campus labs offered in a compressed format near the end of the semester, including a mandatory weekend lab.  There will also be two sections of introductory chemistry which are entirely on-line.  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. Students are advised to carefully consider their ability to attend labs on-campus, and their willingness to conform to those strict safety protocols.
