B.Sc Honors in Chemistry

B.Sc Honors in Chemistry


For national development and progress, the role of Chemistry can hardly be neglected. It is the cornerstone of all industry, environmental and health issues, untapped natural resources, their discovery, and enhancement of quality etc. The vision is to achieve the highest possible standard of scholarship, teaching and research in Chemistry and to develop a curriculum which is need based; with periodical upgrading and modifications considering the global changes, national requirements, and international competitiveness. The department is determined to inculcate the habit of working in groups among the students to acquire respect for values, ethics, and leadership qualities; as a result, appreciation for team work automatically follows suit.


The mission of BS (Chemistry) is to produce learned graduates in Chemistry who can serve the chemical industry and academia of the country with devotion and may excel in higher studies, by providing the students good theoretical knowledge along with the practical and instrumental skills.


This program introduces students to the basics and the latest developments in the field of chemistry. All major chemistry courses are supported with practicals in the lab to reinforce the concepts studied in theory and to develop further understanding of the subject. The courses are taught by a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, practical activity, visits to relevant laboratories, industries and research organizations. The students undertake internships in concerned organizations during the summer vacations in the final year to acquire work experience. The program of study is designed to prepare students for higher learning in this field; to work as professionals with an ability to classify the elements of chemistry and applications thereof, in academia or in chemical, petrochemical, metallurgical, ceramic, biomedical industries and in research institutions.

Admission Requirement

  • FA/F.Sc Part-I with minimum 60% marks OR A-level in three main subjects (no subsidiary) with minimum Grade B (60%) with Equivalence Certificate OR Grade 12 with minimum Grade B (60%) with Equivalence Certificate.

Degree Requirements for B.Sc Honors in Chemistry 4 years program

To receive B.Sc Honors in Chemistry degree, a student must complete a total of 134 credit hours with a minimum CGPA of 2.50.

Active Citizenship Program

Active Citizenship program offered by Kinnaird College in collaboration with British Council and HEC is a social leadership training program that promotes intercultural dialogue and community-led social development. It is a mandatory requirement for the completion of undergraduate degree and based on two semesters. All students will study the theoretical portion through different activities starting in their 3rd semester. They will plan their social action projects in 4th semester and implement it in the field.
