Honors Program

The Honors Program of the University of Colorado Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SSPPS) offers students the opportunity to design and execute a research-oriented project.  In addition to fulfilling the normal coursework requirements of the Pharm.D. curriculum, Honors Program students pursue special research interests with a high degree of individual attention from an SOP faculty mentor. Designed for a small group of students of exceptional merit, the Honors Program provides a hands-on original research experience using contemporary scientific methodologies to develop advanced skills in modern techniques. It is an expectation of the Honors Program that many honors projects will lead to presentations at national meetings or publications in a professional or scientific journal.  Students often find the Honors Program to be an avenue to expanded career opportunities. Students completing the Honors Program will be recognized on their transcript and diploma as having “graduated with honors.”
