Student Research Opportunities

Directed Study / Research

Under the direction of a faculty member, students may earn Directed Research or Directed Study credits for special projects. Directed Study at the College of Pharmacy follows University of Minnesota policy, which generally requires an average workload of three hours per week per academic credit.

Directed Research and Directed Study may be taken on an A/F or S/N grading basis. Students may count Directed Research and Directed Study credits toward their 15 credits of electives (even if taken on the S/N grading basis). Once the sponsoring faculty and the student agree on the terms of the experience, the faculty should submit a Directed Study Request Form. The Curriculum Operations team will then create the course and enroll the student in it. Please contact Kaitlyn Carlson on the Curriculum Operations team with any questions about Directed Research/Directed Study enrollment.
