The Degree program starts Autumn Quarter and runs for 7 consecutive quarters, including summer. The program culminates with a Capstone Course in the Spring where we discuss strategy, business, and marketing for successful drug development. For example, if you start Autumn 2022, you will finish in Spring 2024.
The Certificate program also starts Autumn Quarter and runs for 4 consecutive quarters alongside the degree students. Students who switch from certificate to degree will be able to complete their degree with an additional 5 quarters: 4 quarters from the certificate, and 5 quarters for the degree for a total of 9 quarters. Certificate to degree students will finish Autumn Quarter 2 years after they start. For example, if you start in Autumn 2022, you are a certificate through Spring of 2023, then a degree student from Summer 2023- through Autumn 2024 with Summer 2024 off.
