LITERATURE-BASED DISTANCE MASTER OF SCIENCE DEGREE IN PHARMACOLOGY AND TOXICOLOGY OVERVIEW
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND INFORMATION
The Literature-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 additional academic qualifications that will facilitate advancement at their place of employment or increase their competitiveness for admission to professional degree programs. This program is suited to students who do not have access to research facilities that would enable the generation of novel data for a Laboratory-based M.S. thesis but want to further their education for career advancement or to bolster their credentials for applying to a professional school. Students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in any biomedical science program are encouraged to consider applying to our on-campus M.S. degree program or our Laboratory-based distance M.S. degree. However, the later program requires that you have access to some research facilities at your home site to complete a bench or computational based project. The Literature-based distance M.S. program requires 30 total credit hours for graduation that is distributed between didactic course work and faculty acceptance of a comprehensive and in-depth literature-based thesis.
