    Master of Pharmaceutical Science [M7E]

    About

    The Master of Pharmaceutical Science encompasses four semesters and is considered a 2.0 year degree (i.e. semesters 1, 2, 3 and 4) to be offered at Hobart.

    Graduates will have gained knowledge in the pharmaceutical and pharmacological sciences, and developed skills in written and verbal communication in these areas. They will have delivered three presentations to their peers and lecturers during the completion of the course, and extensively utilised information technology. Graduates will have experienced problem solving in the pharmaceutical sciences, and will have studied the global context of pharmaceuticals. Social and ethical implications of these studies will be emphasised.

    The course is designed to equip graduate students with the fundamental knowledge and skills to enhance career opportunities within the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries, academic pharmaceutical research, or pharmaceutical regulatory organisations. The supervised program of research will provide candidates with the opportunity to develop a solid grounding in research methodology and enhance their skills of problem identification and problem solving, and their ability to develop and present solutions.
