- • MSLD 201: Understanding Self and Others would be substituted by MSLD 211: Learning and Technology. Rationale: These are not first year students, they have been at Drake for a while and know it well, personality (a strong copy in this course) is covered in another Pharmacy course.
- • MSLD 206 (Analyzing and Communicating with Data) would be waived provided that students take Pharmacy 172
- • MSLD 210 (Capstone) would be waived provided that students take Pharmacy 173 (ideally, Chuck Phillips’ section, which allows students to actually conduct some research)
Professional electives required by the PharmD program (5 credit hours) will be fulfilled by MSLD coursework (6 cr. for P1 students entering Fall 2019 and prior).
Professional Electives Policy: Core curricula of CPHS degree programs may require professional elective courses that permit exploration of and/or advanced study in areas of professional interest within the student’s primary degree. Professional electives provide the student with an opportunity to not only pursue areas of intellectual interest, but also to develop an individual “brand” that may benefit them in their professional or academic future. Students who desire to have a non-approved electives count toward professional elective credit should apply for an exception to program policy prior to taking the course whenever possible. Professional electives must be taken for a grade unless the course is designed as credit/no credit. Students should refer to their degree audit for determination of the total number of required professional electives. Students should review the student handbook for the complete professional elective policy and details specific to their degree program.
Students will typically apply for admission to the MSLD program during the spring of the P1 year. Additional information can be obtained at the following website: http://www.drake.edu/leadership/. The admission process and criteria are listed on the MSLD program website: http://www.drake.edu/soe/admission/.
The MSLD 291 (Capstone) course will be fulfilled through the completion of PHAR 173. Students will be invited / welcome to participate in the MSLD program's poster event.
There is a 5-year time limit for completing the MSLD degree from the date of admission to the MSLD program.
