A master’s degree program allows students to gain graduate-level knowledge and skill in a specific discipline after they complete undergraduate coursework. Students typically complete a master’s degree in two years, although program duration varies from school to school.

Anyone wanting a rewarding career in the healthcare industry may wonder, what is a Master in Pharmacy? Students who pursue one of these master’s degrees learn the knowledge and skills they need to fill prescriptions and counsel patients. Generally, students take beginning, intermediate and advanced pharmacology subjects, including in-depth chemistry. They usually learn about these topics through lectures, labs and collaborative projects. Students often take a hands-on practicum in intensive care, internal medicine, infectious disease, pediatrics or another kind of pharmacy. They may also write a major paper or participate in clerkships prior to graduation.

While working on earning a Master in Pharmacy, program participants typically learn how to think critically, apply the scientific method and plan projects. These skills often help students become better pharmacists and more organized individuals. They also usually prepare them to be mentors in the pharmacy industry.

Determining the exact cost to complete a Master in Pharmacy can be difficult without specific information from the school about overall tuition and fees. Prior to matriculating, students often choose to discuss expenses with program officials to better understand total costs.

Those who earn a Master in Pharmacy often plan to immediately enter the professional world. After receiving licenses, many work as pharmacists in hospitals, clinics, drugstores and other places. Those who do not directly work as pharmacists often join the business sector as pharmacy auditors, pharmaceutical suppliers or research associates. On the other hand, there is usually a place in academia for graduates with master’s degrees, so some individuals work as research assistants, teaching professors or study planners. Meanwhile, some individuals remain in school by enrolling in a doctoral program.

Students pursue a Master in Pharmacy in a variety of ways. Some attend conventional universities, while others take online or correspondence classes.
