The MS in pharmaceutical sciences degree focuses on drug discovery, research, development and manufacturing. The program offers five unique tracks to provide students with specialized training to help them meet their career interests and goals.
Students conduct research and complete lab-based courses in on-campus facilities that have the same innovative technology and equipment used in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. The hands-on, practical training prepares them for high-ranking positions in the pharmaceutical industry or the opportunity to continue their education in a PhD program.
