Pharmaceutics

Drug Delivery and Disposition

In Pharmaceutics, the discipline of dosage form design, master’s and doctoral students explore the interdisciplinary studies of drug delivery, metabolism and disposition, determining the factors that transform a drug into a safe and effective form of medication.

Your education in Pharmaceutics will help you launch scientific investigations into the fabrication, evaluation, use and delivery strategies of dosage forms. This involves aspects of the drug’s transport to its site of action — including absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) — and its mechanism of action.

TUSP’s drug testing research facility, the Jayne Haines Center, and our cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) Site — one of only six pharmacy-school centers like it — have been instrumental in serving Pharmaceutics Master’s and Doctoral students for years.

Alternatively, if you are an industry professional interested in pursuing postgraduate study, our Pharmaceutics Non-Thesis Master’s Degree might be right for you. Learn more about this part-time program designed for people who want to advance their careers.
