Our MS program is for students who have previously earned a BS degree and wish to acquire high-impact positions in research, industry, education and health care settings.
The MS program is research-focused, immersing our students in diverse aspects of drug action, from drug discovery to various elements of drug evaluation.
You must satisfactorily complete at least 30 graduate credit hours for the MS degree. Required courses with a grade lower than a B- will not count toward the minimum credits.
