About Special Topic Electives

Detailed information regarding special topics electives may be found within the PharmD Student Handbook.

Special Topics elective courses allow a student the opportunity to personalize his or her education by engaging a mentored experience in a particular area of pharmaceutical science, pharmacy practice, or pharmacy education through individual or small group work under the direction of a faculty member. Special Topics may take the form of immersion in a laboratory, a defined literature review, or other longitudinal experience, activity, or course co-designed by a student and a faculty mentor. Special Topics may be designed as a 1-credit, 2-credit, or 3-credit course, depending on the nature of the experience, expected commitment of the student, and stated outcomes of the course.
