Temple University School of Pharmacy (TUSP) has a diverse student population with students from all over the world contributing to a vibrant intellectual environment. We welcome your interest in the Graduate programs of TUSP and hope to hear from you soon.
The department offers two types of graduate degree programs:
(1) Areas of research for the thesis-based (M.S. and Ph.D.) full-time program:
Financial support in the form of teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and/or University Fellowships are available on a competitive basis to incoming students. It is important to note that these support mechanisms are generally offered only to individuals pursuing the terminal degree in the discipline (Ph.D.).
(2) Areas of study for working professionals in the non-thesis-based M.S. (part-time) program:
Students pursuing the M.S. degree may seek support through government and or corporate sponsors, or individual faculty members.
A core mission of the department's graduate program is to train students to contribute to fundamental understanding and application of the various pharmaceutical sciences: namely, drug action (pharmacodynamics); drug synthesis (medicinal chemistry); drug metabolism and disposition (pharmacokinetics and metabolism) and drug delivery (pharmaceutics).
The graduate faculty provide the expertise and the opportunity for graduate students to gain knowledge about:
