Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Pharmacology and Toxicology
Description:One of the greatest challenges in the biomedical sciences today is to understand disease processes and to develop new therapies. Pharmacology is the multidisciplinary science that deals with all aspects of drugs and their interactions with living organisms. It has developed its own set of principles and methods to study the mode of action of drugs, in addition to utilizing many techniques and approaches from several disciplines, including: biochemistry, physiology, anatomy, and cell and molecular biology.

The Major Program provides a solid background in pharmacology and allied disciplines, which is excellent preparation for graduate studies in biomedical or environmental sciences, or professional programs, including: medicine, dentistry, nursing, and veterinary sciences.
