Goal of Pharmaceutical Sciences Program: The goal of graduate study at The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy is to develop the intellectual breadth and specialized training necessary for a career in teaching, research or advanced professional practice.

Emphasis is placed on the knowledge, methods and skills needed for scholarly teaching; original research and problem solving; intellectual leadership; creative expression; and professional prominence and recognition.

Students who wish to enter into the graduate program in pharmaceutical sciences will select from one of five division-specific training tracks for training with a emphasis in Health Outcomes and Pharmacy Practice, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmaceutics, Pharmacology and Toxicology, or Pharmacotherapy.

Students interested in Ph.D. research and training that spans across two or more of the five division-specific tracks may choose to customize their curriculum and training by participating in an “interdisciplinary” track. Applicants interested in this option must elect one of the five division-specific training tracks as their home division for the admissions application process. Once accepted into the Ph.D. program, and working under the direction of one or more faculty mentors, a customized curriculum can be developed in order to allow for a dissertation project that crosses between two or more of the five division-specific training tracks. Please contact the Pharmacy Graduate Coordinator for further clarification or questions on the interdisciplinary track.
