Learning Outcomes

The overall goal of the program in Pharmacology and Toxicology is to prepare students with a comprehensive understanding of the interactions of drug and toxin actions with living cells and tissues. Majors in our program are expected to master both the conceptual and practical aspects of pharmacology and toxicology, as well as fundamental laboratory techniques used in assessing drug action. This training provides students with an array of career opportunities including advanced study in either graduate or professional schools or for scientific careers in regulatory affairs, production analysis, product safety or sales, or as research scientists and/or drug information specialists.
