Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology

Pharmacology and Toxicology Core Classes

Our Master of Science programs in Pharmacology and Toxicology provide students with a career-oriented yet theoretically based education. The core curriculum combines text and literature-based lectures, complemented by laboratory instruction and journal club-type seminars.

The research-based Master of Science program and a leadership/administration Master of Science program are available. All Master of Science in Pharmacology and Toxicology candidates, regardless of their chosen track, are required to have an advisor and an advisory committee. The advisory committee will help formulate a study program, provide counseling and evaluate student progress. To qualify for the Master of Science degree, a student must satisfy the requirements of the Wright State University Graduate School as well as all program requirements.

Course Requirements

To encourage and promote success in our students, we have decided to start a Cohort Program for fall 2018. All Pharmacology and Toxicology students will take the core courses together. Incoming students-please look for your track of interest to determine your course load.
