The CSC manages the accreditation of undergraduate chemistry programs across Canada and around the world. Our program helps ensure that graduates are earning recognized degrees that are a firm foundation on which to build a career.

CSC Accredited Programs

CSC accreditation helps attract students to high quality, nationally-recognized programs, allows programs to innovate and evolve, provides the basic training required to register professional chemists with provincial professional associations, and provides comparator analyses required by quality assurance. 

Please note:

  • CSC accreditation can include programs closely related to chemistry provided there is a strong chemistry foundation, such as biochemistry and environmental chemistry programs
  • All international accreditations require a site visit
  • Program cycles may be adjusted slightly to align with provincially mandated program reviews
