Order texts on-line:

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 include copy of your resume with your registration form.

Students are expected to take proctored exams on the dates 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 2020, so plan your schedule accordingly.

* The required courses in the Non-Thesis MS in Pharmaceutics are:
Pharmaceutical Analysis (8002)
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing I:  Preformulation/Formulation (8003)
Pharmaceutical Manufacturing II: Solid Dosage Forms (8004)
Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (8005)

Students in the Pharmaceutics Non-Thesis Master's program may complete either Good Manufacturing Practices (5477) or Advanced GMPs - Defining "c" (5479).  They will not receive credit for both. Good Mmanufacturing Practices is offered every semester; Advanced GMPs-Defining "c" is offered once a year.

Required courses in this program are only offered in the fall and spring semesters, so we urge students to complete them as soon as possible. Only a limited number of electives are offered in the Summer.
