About Undergraduate Programs...
UNB offers two introductory chemistry course streams, one for science programs and one for non-science programs. A complete list of undergraduate courses is available here.
Student in science programs will take CHEM 1001 and CHEM 1006 in the Fall term, then CHEM 1012 and CHEM 1017 in the Winter term. CHEM 1001/1006/1012/1017 are required courses for the Chemistry, Biology, Biology-Chemistry, Geology and Physics programs.These CHEM courses are designed for students who have had a good high school chemistry course (Chemistry 122, 70% or better) and meet the other Bachelor of Science general adimission requirements.
Student in non-science programs, including Engineering, Forestry, and Forest Engineering may require introductory chemistry courses. Consult the appropriate program for its courses requirements.
Students planning to take the CHEM 1001 route must possess some basic chemistry and math skills at the start of the course. Here is a list of review topics and a pre-CHEM 1001 Chemistry/Math self-test, to assess your skills. This self-test covers topics dealing with simple formulas, equations, stoichiometry and gas laws, solutions, as well as basic mathematical skills
Students who did not take high school chemistry or obtained a grade of less than 70% in Chemistry 122 must take CHEM 1801 in the Fall term, in addition to CHEM 1882. CHEM 1801 is a chemistry primer course for students with little or no prior work in chemistry.
