Description and Learning Objectives
The minor in Pharmacology will provide students with a foundation in the interdisciplinary pharmacology field. Students will learn the core concepts of pharmacology, including fundamental methods of pharmacological studies, mechanisms of action drugs to treat varieties of diseases, and toxicity and safety assessment in drug development. Pharmacology benefits students who will pursue degrees in health professions and who are interested in drug discovery.
Requirements & Expectations
Students must complete 18 credits beyond the prerequisite courses. Of these 18 credits, a minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum. Interested students should apply to the pharmacology minor program early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work.
