Course of Study The one-year degree program will provide a strong science foundation for those interested in pursuing doctoral-level graduate programs in pharmacy and other health care or science fields. Students will be better prepared to further pursue the professional doctoral-level career paths currently being offered nationwide. Some courses may be offered in a hybrid model, which includes synchronous and asynchronous online learning, as well as on-campus learning and videoconferencing. Some courses will be combined with existing Pharm.D. and graduate courses, while others will be stand-alone, master’s degreespecific courses. M.S. students may be assessed differently when appropriate. The program must be completed within two academic years from the date of matriculation. Note: Completion of this programdoes not ensure prerequisite requirements needed to apply for health care-related degrees such as pharmacy.
