Temple U Ambler Bookstore

Students pursuing courses in the Pharmaceutics Non-Thesis Master's Degree are expected to have strong science backgrounds (a minimum of 2 years of general chemistry, including one organic and one analytical chemistry course).

Non-thesis MS students should pursue required courses (see list below*) before taking electives. If you register for courses before formally applying to the master's degree, you must complete at least two required courses before taking any elective.

If you have not been formally accepted into the Pharmaceutics MS program, or if you are a RAQA student who wishes to register for a Pharmaceutical Sciences course, please attach a copy of your resume to your registration form.

Students are expected to take proctored exams on the date listed in the Schedule of Classes. Please check your schedule carefully before registering to make sure you are available on the designated exam date. There is a first time fee of $20 charged to any student who cannot take the exam on the designated date and requests a makeup test; in subsequent semesters, the fee increases to $30 per exam and then $50 per exam. For more information on proctoring and these fees, click here.

Special Schedule Note for Pharmaceutics Non-Thesis Master's Students: Physical Pharmacy (Pharmaceutics 8006) is only offered in the spring semester of even-numbered years. It will be offered in Spring 2018 and again in Spring 2020, so plan your schedule accordingly.

Pharmaceutical Analysis (8002)
