Pharmaceutical Sciences Minor

The Pharmaceutical Sciences minor allows students to build on the science foundation gained in their major, and to apply those scientific concepts toward the understanding and development of more effective treatments.  This minor is an excellent supplement to majors in chemistry, physiology, biochemistry, biology, and other science majors, but can be a great fit for anyone with an interest in healthcare, the pharmaceutical industry, or biotechnology.

The minor requires a minimum of 18 PCOL units, from the approved minor course list.  Almost all minor courses require prerequisites in chemistry, physiology, and/or biology.  Schedule a meeting with a PharmSci advisor in order to develop a course plan, and to formally declare the minor.
