Program Curriculum

Specific Program Requirements (Hegis Code 0409)

A minimum grade of B– must be achieved in each pharmacology core course and pharmacology elective in order to use it to fulfill degree requirements. Elective credits must be in advanced didactic courses in pharmacology (catalog numbers 2000-7999) or, if in other disciplines, in didactic courses approved by the program director. Students who submit a Master’s Thesis (Track B) will be required to present and defend their work before their thesis committees.

The Biomedical Science & Management track (Track C) requires 36 credits overall. This total includes a minimum of 24 credits from the science curriculum, a minimum of 8 credits from the professional skills curriculum, and an internship and capstone project report. A Master’s Literature Review may be substituted for the capstone report if proprietary concerns at the company hosting the internship preclude a formal report. In certain circumstances, with the approval of the program director and associate dean for the professional science Master’s program, a research rotation (PHRM 9800 or BMSM 9800, minimum 3 credits) may be substituted for the internship, along with either a Master’s Literature Review or a Master’s Thesis.
