I decided to elect taking a pharmacology course (pharmacology 310) this fall to satisfy one of the upper level course requirements for the Biomolecular Science major. I try my best to do some research before taking classes, and haven’t found anything pertaining to this course except what’s provided on atlas and the historical syllabi. Pharmacology is really relevant for medicine-related careers, and this course seems really interesting so if anyone has any guidance as to what to expect in terms of difficulty and workload that would be great. Thank you!
I hope you are doing well! Unfortunately, none of our Advisors have taken this class since it is not a mandatory pre-med course, so we aren’t sure about the difficulty and workload for PHRMACOL 310. However, what I would recommend is attending the course for the first couple of weeks to see if you are able to handle the courseload for it with your schedule this semester. If you decide that it may be too difficult and/or heavy, then you could substitute it for another elective course for the Biomolecular Science major (I have heard good things about MICRBIOL 405 and a microbiology course is also relevant for medicine-related careers).
I hope this helps! Feel free to follow up on this Q&A post or make another post if you have any further questions!
