University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Pharmacology B.S.

Pharmacology is a subject that integrates a knowledge of biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, physiology, and chemistry to study the relationship between biological processes and therapeutic agents. Pharmacologists investigate the active effects and mechanisms of drugs and chemical agents within living organisms. The areas of pharmacology are many and diverse, and include the therapeutic and toxicological actions of drugs on humans, animals and microorganisms; the influence of chemicals upon the environment and biological ecosystems and; the use of drugs as research tools for the elucidation of molecular and biochemical mechanisms. The pharmacology major can prepare students for graduate study and professional programs leading ultimately to careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and other health sciences. Transfer students are admitted to pre-major status until all prerequisites are satisfied.
