MS Options

The Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology Graduate Program participates in the GSBS at RWJMS Masters in Biomedical Sciences and Masters of Science in Biomedical Sciences Programs.

The only way a Master’s degree can be given directly by the Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology Graduate Program is in cases when study toward a PhD terminates early (eg. relocation with family).

Requirements for a Terminal Masters

Credits – Students leaving with a terminal Masters degree must maintain a 3.0 (B) GPA with a minimum of 32 credits, including at least 6 credits of research.

Thesis - A written thesis is required for each Masters degree. The document shall describe the student’s research field and the progress the student has made toward the goals of the independent project. The thesis will be reviewed by a committee of three members, consisting of the thesis advisor, another faculty member from the Pharmacology Graduate Program, and a faculty member from outside the program.

Thesis Defense - The thesis defense will consist of an oral examination on the topic of the thesis. The committee of faculty members described above will conduct the examination.
