This programme provides an excellent education in all the major branches of Chemistry, where topics ranging from fundamentals to the frontiers of modern Chemistry are covered. If you are interested in specialising in Chemistry and/or would like the flexibility to experience our other sciences, Critical Skills and Electives courses, then the BSc is the best pathway to study Chemistry.

  • In the early years, in addition to the core Chemistry modules, there is a flexible curriculum to suit personal interests, allowing courses and modules in other sciences, critical skills or elective streams to be combined with the core Chemistry content.
  • There is scope for some specialisation, through appropriate choice of modules in the fourth year. In fourth year you will also have the opportunity to undertake a Single Major or Double Major degree, as well as direct experience of research through an in-depth individual research project.
  • The Department of Chemistry at Maynooth University offers state-of-the-art facilities and high standards in both teaching and research, which ensures a highly supportive learning environment, as well as a personal supervisor to oversee an in-depth final year research project.
  • In addition to becoming an expert in chemical science, you will develop skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, and scientific writing. These highly valued transferable skills will leave you well-prepared for a range of careers and employment opportunities in chemistry and non-chemistry disciplines.
