ACPHS offers Master of Science degree programs in the following areas:
The Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences program focuses on the discovery, development and evaluation of new drugs and other pharmaceutical products. Students may choose between one of two major sub-disciplines: pharmacology or pharmaceutics. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available. Students may also pursue this degree on the College's Vermont Campus.
The Master of Science in Health Outcomes Research program provides the knowledge and unique skills necessary for evaluating economic, clinical, and humanistic outcomes of medical interventions, with an emphasis on the evaluation of pharmaceutical products and services. The program emphasizes quantitative and analytical methods, assessment, and research in health outcomes by providing fundamental courses in quantitative analysis and econometrics, as well as applied courses in health statistics, health policy, and pharmacoeconomic methods.
With its combination of basic science, clinical and translational research, the M.S. in Biotechnology is well suited to those currently working as laboratory technologists or basic research scientists, and who are looking to advance their careers with a graduate degree.
The M.S. in Cytotechnology and Molecular Cytology is a one of a kind program that merges traditional cytotechnology (evaluation of cells for cancer) and state-of-the-art biomedical technology, helping prepare students to be at the forefront of tissue and cell-based diagnostics.
The five year BS/MS joint degree program in Biotechnology-Cytotechnology prepares students for careers as health care professionals and/or scientific researchers. The program is ideal for recent high school graduates interested in careers in laboratory diagnostics or biotechnology research.
Please submit an online application to apply to any of our graduate programs. Priority will be given to applicants who apply by April 15.
Please note that the College's GRE Code is 2013. Additionally, international transcripts must be evaluated by WES and included with the admission application.
