Experiential Learning

Students with scientific research experience are highly sought after by prospective employers. While enrolled in the BS portion of the program, all students are required to take PHC 498 Undergraduate Research, a 3-credit undergraduate research participation project. A laboratory, computer data analysis, or library research experience is an important and unique feature of our program.

While enrolled in the MS portion of the program, all students are required to take additional credits for graduate research. Students must attain satisfactory completion of a research project, which includes approval of the Project Committee after submission of a written project report, presentation of an open seminar, and oral defense.

Extracurricular Activities

The UB American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Student Chapter is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Student Association (PGSA) provides a voice for pharmaceutical sciences graduate students.
