Message from the Undergraduate Program Director

As part of the Chemistry Department's commitment to offering useful and high-quality degrees, our programs are continually evolving.  We recognize that students often come to university not knowing what to expect, not knowing their options, not knowing the rules or deadlines, or not knowing exactly what they want from their university experience. Some students hear different things from different people. I thus invite to explore our website to learn more about the exciting opportunities our Department provides. Whether you are considering York for your undergraduate studies, are new to York, or already an experienced student here, we hope that our website has all the information you are looking for and that it speaks to our commitment to delivering a quality and satisfying experience for all students.

If you require any additional information, part of my job is to provide you with the most complete information on our programs and offerings. I welcome suggestions on how we can improve any aspect of the undergraduate experience, so feel free to visit or to email me at with your ideas or concerns.

In the meantime, I wish you success and productivity in your Chemistry studies!
