Chemistry Papers at Tauranga (2020)
Chemistry is concerned with the properties of substances and materials from an atomic and molecular perspective. Most Chemistry papers involve approximately equal time spent in lectures and in laboratory work so that the theoretical and experimental aspects of the topics may be explored together.
Chemistry is available as a first major for the Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Science (Technology) (BSc(Tech)). Chemistry may also be taken as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to approval of the Division in which the student is enrolled.
To complete Chemistry as a single major for the BSc and BSc(Tech), students must gain 135 points including CHEMY101, CHEMY102, CHEMY201, CHEMY202, CHEMY203, CHEMY204, and at least 45 points from CHEMY301, CHEMY302, CHEMY303 and CHEMY304.
To complete Chemistry as part of a double major for the BSc, BSc(Tech) or other undergraduate degree, students must gain 120 points including CHEMY101, CHEMY102, CHEMY201, CHEMY202, CHEMY203, CHEMY204, and at least 30 points from CHEMY301, CHEMY302, CHEMY303 and CHEMY304.
To complete a minor in Chemistry, students must complete 60 points from the papers listed for the Chemistry major, including at least 30 points above 100 level.
Note: Students who commenced a major in Chemistry in 2017 or prior should contact the Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science for programme advice.
