Program Description

The Texas Southern University, College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Graduate Program in the Pharmaceutical Sciences (GPPS) was approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board on July 15, 2004. The first students enrolled in August of 2004. Adhering to the mission of the program, the GPPS has sought to effectively train students for teaching and research careers in the pharmaceutical sciences. Focus of the program is to prepare graduate students, especially underrepresented minorities, who are capable of research and make contributions to the current knowledge of pharmaceutical sciences. This is closely in line with the University’s strategic goal of provide basic and applied research.

Students in the program are trained in biomedical and pharmaceutical principles via didactic courses in the discipline areas of pharmaceutics, pharmacology, chemistry, molecular biology, laboratory skills, and regulatory courses. The qualifying examination and comprehensive examination are used to assess students’ knowledge. Students are trained in literature review, grant writing, manuscript preparations in “Seminar/Grantsmanship” PHS 802, PHS 803 (1 Credit each) courses. This is a required course for every student to take every semester. Students are also trained to take leadership role in managing his/her research project. This is accomplished mainly via PhD Research courses (PHS 916, PHS 917, variable credit), where students have close interactions with his/her faculty mentor(s) regarding their dissertation studies. The program uses various technologies including online resources from NIH, FDA, etc; guest speakers when we invite top leaders in the pharmaceutical industrial, government agency and academia to lecture on recent progress; and TSU core directors’ presentation where students are exposed to various modern instrumentations available on campus for their projects. Students are also encouraged to participate internships related to his/her field.
