Distance Master of Science (M.S.) in Pharmaceutical Chemistry
The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry's Distance Master's Program features the same high-quality lectures and courses offered in the Ph.D. program.
This program will allow the industrial scientist or the student at a collaborating institution to remain at their respective venues and earn the M.S. degree under a collaborative academic environment.
The quality and impact of the Masters thesis project is something we take very seriously. We expect excellent performance in a rigorous set of core coursework. If you are a highly motivated student, this will not be a significant obstacle to the successful completion of the program.
Students from industry normally take one course per semester, while students in collaborating academic institutions often take several courses.
Once you have prepared a research proposal that is approved by on-site and distance learning advisors, you will conduct thesis research during the regular semesters and/or during the summer period.
Students who complete the program will receive a master's degree from the University of Kansas, and more importantly, develop those skills to help you become an independent research scientist possessing a solid scientific thought process and the confidence to handle any problems you encounter throughout your independent research career.
