Program Description

At the Marshall University School of Pharmacy, we do things a bit differently.

  • Active Learning/Flipped Classroom: We chose to design our innovative spaces to best suit your unique learning style: small, intimate spaces with less than 80 students per class. As part of active learning, Marshall has instituted the flipped classroom. The flipped classroom places special emphasis on the social, hands-on aspect of learning, and our faculty encourage interactive teaching in these classrooms. Lectures are provided in advance to make the classroom a place for interactivity, knowledge development and concept emphasis.
  • Simulation before practice: State-of-the-art simulation areas allow you to practice skills and daily pharmacy activities before jumping into real-world situations.
  • Early practice experiences: There’s no waiting until your third year for practice experience. Huntington’s location gives Marshall students the opportunity to be certified and giving immunizations within the first year and have a student license in three states (West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio).
