Bachelor of Science (BSc) majoring in Pharmacology
Your BSc programme will consist of a number of courses worth 15 points each, totalling 360 points.
You must complete the following courses plus a capstone course in your final year of study. The capstone course is a student-led project where you integrate and apply your learning to a real-world problem in your chosen major or specialisation. For Pharmacology we recommend the capstone course, PHARMCOL 399. For other capstone options, see our Capstone courses page.
