Graduate Program

Master of Science in Pharmacy Program

The School of Pharmacy Graduate Program was approved in 1986 by the Council on Higher Education.  The first class was admitted in academic year 1987-1988.  A Master of Science in Pharmacy degree is offered with two options of study:  Pharmaceutical Sciences and Industrial Pharmacy.  Classes for both options usually convene during evening hours and Saturday mornings, thus making it possible for persons already employed to obtain an advance degree.  Both options require 40 trimester credit-hours for graduation, including original research work presented as the student’s thesis. 

The main goal of the graduate program is to provide advanced training in industrial pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences.  Within the context of this general goal, the specific program objectives are to: 

▪ Offer an opportunity for individuals to advance their knowledge in specific
  areas of industrial pharmacy.

▪ Prepare individuals for research and teaching positions needing a strong
  background in the pharmaceutical sciences.

▪ Develop individuals with the research skills needed to carry out basic and
  applied studies.

▪ Address the pharmaceutical needs of Puerto Rico.
