Pharmacology and Toxicology, MS

The program leading to the Master of Science degree in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology will prepare students for careers in industry, government, education, and research organizations or for further professional training. It is offered in close cooperation with the U.S. Air Force and Navy Toxicology Laboratories located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

This program differs from other undergraduate major or master’s-level programs currently offered at Wright State University, both conceptually and with respect to employment and career options. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the broad range of theoretical concepts that comprise these disciplines, providing both historical context and state-of-the-art technical approaches to solving pharmacological and toxicological problems. This goal of providing students with a career-oriented yet theoretically based education will be accomplished within the core curriculum through the combination of text and literature-based lectures, complemented by laboratory instruction and journal club type seminars, and culminating with a thesis research project.
