Program Description

The medicinal chemistry and drug discovery MS program integrates aspects of contemporary medicinal chemistry and pharmacology, emphasizing topics most relevant to therapeutics design, discovery, and action. The core curriculum focuses on a combination of synthetic organic chemistry, bioorganic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and pharmacology courses. Specialized, in-depth electives are offered in these areas. The program is designed to develop students’ knowledge of medicinal chemistry through design, synthesis, and pharmacological profiling of novel pharmacotherapeutics as applied to helping solve unmet medical needs. For this purpose, many program graduates have established research careers in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry. Undergraduate prerequisites are general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry or cell/molecular biology.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT INFORMATION
Applicants who have degree coursework from institutions outside of the United States must submit a credential evaluation. We require the iCAP WES package that evaluates your transcripts course by course. Transcript evaluations will allow our reviewers to better understand the educational system in which you studied. We will not review international applicants without the transcript evaluation.
