This degree is awarded upon completion of at least 30 credits in courses acceptable for the degree. These courses are from the required and program courses listed below and from courses approved by the advisor/program director. A minimum of 6 credits at the 800-level, a maximum of 6 credits at the 300- or 400-level, and the remainder at the 700- or 800-level are required. Registration (for 1 or 0 credits) and participation in PH 890 - Pharmaceutics Seminar is required each semester, but only one credit may be applied toward the 30-credit requirement.

Prerequisites/Corequisites


Only 6 credits at the 300–400 level can be applied toward the degree. These prerequisite/co-requisite courses may be taken at USciences or at another institution or may be waived by the program director based on life-experience related to the specific courses. In the latter case, these courses do not have to be transcripted unless they will be used to fulfill program course requirements.
