The master's degree in Pharmacology equips its students with the skills needed in preclinical and clinical drugs research and the application of this in drug therapy, so that they can join the profession or go on to doctoral studies.

Students will acquire both knowledge of the scientific, ethical and social fundamentals of pharmacology and practical skills and attitudes that will enable them to apply this knowledge to drug development and use.
