The UBC Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology, and Therapeutics offers a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree with a Major in Pharmacology (PCTH).

  • The programs emphasize the experimental and laboratory aspects of pharmacology and students learn both whole animal and isolated tissue techniques, as well as biochemical and chemical procedures
  • All students who intend to take the BSc in Pharmacology must consult the UBC undergraduate advisor and apply directly to the Department for admission to the BSc. Admission will be based on academic performance and suitability for pharmacological research
  • Enrolment in PCTH 300 is restricted to students in the third year of the various Pharmacology specializations. Students who wish to enter Pharmacology specializations need to have completed all prerequisites and obtained an average of greater than 75% in each of their first and second years
