    Comparison of credit hours required for earn a Pharm.D. degree and a Pharm.D degree with Special Honors


    Traditional Pharm.D curriculum Honors Program Pharm.D. curriculum
    PHR 151R‡  and PHR 167H x 2  -- 2–3 credits‡  
    Professional electives min of 4-6 credits
    Honors elective (one)
    2-4 credits*
    Honors Seminar, proposal and thesis project -- 6 credits*
    Total additional credits -- 6-8 credits

    ‡ PHR 151R is not required, but is highly recommended for all Honors Program students.

    * Only one honors elective need be completed.  The course work in the honors program will satisfy all of the courses necessary to fulfill the professional elective requirement for the degree.

    Although the number of credit hours for completion of the Honors Program is not significantly different from the traditional Pharm.D. degree, the course content will be less traditional and more exciting. The statement "Research Honors in Pharmacy" will appear on your transcript when you complete the Honors curriculum.
