Course requirements

M.Sc. in Pharmacology (Chemical Biology option)

Please note: a grayed out course title means the course is currently not offered this year.

Required courses (9-15 credits)

 

PHAR 562 General Pharmacology 1 3
PHAR 563 General Pharmacology 2 3
PHAR 601D1 Comprehensive 3
PHAR 601D2 Comprehensive 3
PHAR 712 Statistics for Pharmacologists 3

 

Complementary courses are chosen in consultation with the research director. Graduate Committee may stipulate additional course work (e.g. BIOC 404 Biophysical Chemistry , BIOC 450 Protein Structure and Function or BIOC 454 Nucleic Acids ) depending on the background and project of the candidate. *Students exempted from one or both of PHAR 562 General Pharmacology 1 and PHAR 563 General Pharmacology 2 because they have taken these courses (or equivalent) as undergraduates must complete 3 or 6 credits, respectively, from Complementary course list D below.
