The college offers a Master of Science in Pharmacy (MSc (Pharm)) degree program starting in September 2011. The program was approved by the Qatar University Board of Regents in May 2010.
The MSc (Pharm) degree program is a two-year minimum 33 credit-hour post-baccalaureate thesis-based research-oriented graduate studies program designed to build on the undergraduate degree experience and further enhance critical thinking and research skills. The MSc (Pharm) degree program will also prepare students who wish to pursue a future Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.
The specific program objectives are to: 1) provide an opportunity for students to advance their knowledge, skills and attitudes in specific areas of interest within the pharmaceutical sciences; 2) prepare students for research, teaching and specialty positions requiring personnel with a strong background in these speciality areas, and; 3) develop students with the research skills needed to carry out basic and applied studies.
Graduate students specialize in one of the pharmaceutical sciences research focus areas represented in our college including pharmacognosy, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutics. This list will expand in parallel with our faculty recruitment. The scope of the degree will include any aspect of the discovery, development, analysis and use of medicines to improve health care and related outcomes.
The application process is coordinated by university admissions and is made on an annual basis. The online application process for students admitted in September 2013 opens on January 30, 2013 and will close on May 30, 2013.
The admission process is competitive and the number of available seats is limited. All applicants are required to provide official Academic Transcripts, Proficiency in English, and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General test scores, Reference Forms, Curriculum Vitae, Residency and related documentation. Final admission decisions will be made before July 1, 2012.
