The PBS Department offers graduate programs culminating in a Master of Sciences (M.S.) as well as a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The programs provide world-class research and educational opportunities in pharmaceutical and biomedical science research with access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. The programs are offered in a comprehensive, hands-on atmosphere designed to train scientists who plan to work at the top of their profession.
At the undergraduate level, the PBS Department offers a B.S. program in Pharmaceutical Sciences. This degree offers hands-on career development in a classroom environment in which learning is delivered by outstanding faculty and complemented with real-world laboratory experiments. The B.S. can be coupled with other programs to generate exciting Double Dawg dual degree opportunities.
