Our dynamic research program for online master’s students gives you the opportunity to take charge of your learning and to choose the most appropriate path forward for your own educational and career goals. 

Through our PHC 615 course, you will learn and gain mastery of the process of grant writing from developing a compelling research proposal to completing a simulation and preliminary evaluation of data.

In our PHC 616 course, you will engage in a thesis-driven capstone completing your MS in selecting one method below of your choosing:

  • undertaking a comprehensive exam
  • writing a grant for a program of your choice
  • completing a research project directed by your current employer or UB Pharmaceutical Sciences faculty

Both PHC 615 and 616 empower you to have choice in completing of your master’s degree and graduate with the confidence that you are prepared for the next steps in your educational or career journey.
