Course Descriptions


A core graduate course (5001) and advanced courses (6000) are offered. The core course constitutes the main framework of a student's formal course work, and is designed to be broad-based but at an advanced level.  It is intended to help the student gain a wide understanding in several major areas of the pharmaceutical sciences and thus students are strongly encouraged to take some courses outside their area of specialization. Specialized courses provide the opportunity for in-depth study of selected topics which are more closely related to the student's research area.
