After completing your Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy (BScPharm), you could choose to do a two-year Master of Pharmacy (MPharm). During your master’s studies, you’ll do advanced coursework or a research project, which can lead you to broader opportunities in academia and research, or in the pharmaceutical industry.
Dalhousie’s College of Pharmacy offers a graduate program leading to a Master of Science (MSc) in Pharmaceutical Sciences. This program provides the advanced education and skills you need to become a high quality, research-based scientist who can contribute to drug discovery and development.
The MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences is intended to help you gain a wide understanding in several major areas of the pharmaceutical sciences. Thus, you’re strongly encouraged to take some courses outside your area of specialization. The courses you take in your specialization will provide the opportunity for in-depth study of selected topics more closely related to your research interests.
If you decide to pursue a Master of Pharmacy (MPharm), you could choose from a number of areas of specialty, including
- bio- and nanotechnology/molecular biology
- clinical pharmacy
- medicinal/pharmaceutical chemistry
- pharmaceutics/drug delivery
- pharmacy (general)
The College of Pharmacy also offers learning opportunities and experiences that support the practice needs of the health-care community through our Continuing Pharmacy Education programs.
