LABORATORY-BASED DISTANCE MASTER OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN PHARMACOLOGY AND TOXICOLOGY PROGRAM OVERVIEW
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND INFORMATION
The Laboratory-based Distance Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology is designed to train individuals in molecular, cellular and organ systems pharmacology and toxicology and scientific writing. The program provides advanced scientific knowledge in pharmacology and toxicology and is designed for individuals that are seeking to gain research skills to aid career advancement and/or to increase their competitiveness for admission to Ph.D programs. This program is suited to students who have access to research facilities (i.e., company or university research labs or computational facilities) at their home locale that would enable the generation of novel data for a Laboratory-based M.S. thesis. If you do not have access to facilities that would support the completion of laboratory or computational research but are interested in pursuing a M.S. degree, please consider our Literature-based Distance M.S. program. The Laboratory-based distance M.S. program requires 30 total credit hours for graduation that is distributed between 19 credit hours of didactic course work and 11 research credit hours.
