You’ll get a world-class education through a variety of teaching methods – including lectures, seminars, practical laboratory classes and a laboratory-based research project. The programme prepares you for industry and academia alike, whether you choose employment or pursue your PhD.
With an MSc Pharmacology, you’ll have the skills and knowledge you need to choose from multiple career paths.
Research pharmacology: Many of our graduates go on to work in laboratories at universities, government research institutes or in industry, conducting experiments to gain new insight into disease and developing life-changing new drugs.
Clinical pharmacology: After drugs are developed in the lab, clinical pharmacologists take the next step – focusing on application for human use. Our MSc Pharmacology prepares you for the additional training required to pursue a career in this field.
Pharmacology teaching: You might also choose to work at a university, college lecture theatre or laboratory – sharing what you’ve learned with the next generation.

What I have enjoyed most about studying at GCU is the lectures given by professors who are helpful and most importantly are professionals in each of the chosen fields. This made us look forward to the lectures where we learned a lot of relevant and up to date information. The way professors include students into the lesson was very motivating as well.
