Pharmacology and Toxicology, M.S.
Build your mastery of how drugs and chemicals work and be in the front lines of drug innovation with a pharmacology and toxicology graduate degree. Saint Joseph’s Master of Science in Pharmacology and Toxicology program combines didactic course study with independent laboratory research.
Our thesis-based curriculum emphasizes the integration of pharmacology and toxicology with biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, physiology, statistics and experimental design. You’ll gain a solid knowledge foundation and hands-on research skills to pursue toxicology careers and pharmacologist careers in academia, private industry or public service. You’ll conduct independent research under the guidance of faculty researchers, defend a master’s thesis and present research findings at local and national scientific conferences. You also have the option to work toward the Pharmacology and Toxicology PhD degree.
