The Master of Science Program in Pharmacology requires the student to complete a minimum of 40 credits and a research thesis. Core courses include general pharmacology, clinical pharmacology, medical biochemistry, seminar, and biostatistics. Interested students may prepare for advanced graduate or professional degree programs. Our graduates are prepared to participate in research and development, research management, toxicology review and assessment, and healthcare professional support for research activities.
This program is recognized as a Professional Science Master's degree (PSMs). PSM degrees typically consist of two years academic training in an emerging or interdisciplinary area of science and a professional component that may include internships and “cross-training” in business and communications. PSMs are designed to dovetail into present and future professional career opportunities.
Thomas Jefferson University is fully accredited by the Commission of Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Students applying to the program should have taken undergraduate general and organic chemistry courses and at least one biology course. An undergraduate biochemistry course is strongly recommended, but not required.
