At the undergraduate level, the Department has offered a Minor in Pharmacology since 1996. This Minor program provides a focused introduction to Pharmacology to students registered in complementary B.Sc. programs. Two new undergraduate B.Sc. degree programs in Pharmacology, Major in Pharmacology and Honours in Pharmacology, have been approved. The Major Program provides a solid background in pharmacology and allied disciplines, which is excellent preparation for graduate studies in biomedical or environmental sciences, or professional programs, including: medicine, dentistry, nursing, and veterinary sciences. The Honours Program is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a research career, and are considering subsequent graduate studies in pharmacology. It provides an opportunity for hands-on research experience - the student becomes affiliated with one of our pharmacology research laboratories and will carry out and interpret experiments on a designated project.
