From inhalers that ease breathing to pills and injections that destroy cancer, pharmacology affects billions of people around the world as a powerful force for good. In our MSc Pharmacology programme from Glasgow Caledonian University, you’ll discover how to harness that power to save and improve countless lives.
As part of our thriving, diverse and globally networked research community, you’ll investigate how the body works and what goes wrong when a disease strikes – and learn how drugs are engineered to reverse and even prevent a wide range of medical conditions.
You’ll get a world-class education through a variety of teaching methods – including lectures, seminars, practical laboratory classes and a laboratory-based research project. The programme prepares you for industry and academia alike, whether you choose employment or pursue your PhD.
With an MSc Pharmacology from Glasgow Caledonian University, you’ll have the skills and knowledge you need to choose from multiple career paths.
Research pharmacology: Many of our graduates go on to work in laboratories at universities, government research institutes or in industry, conducting experiments to gain new insight into disease and developing life-changing new drugs.
Clinical pharmacology: After drugs are developed in the lab, clinical pharmacologists take the next step – focusing on application for human use. Our MSc Pharmacology prepares you for the additional training required to pursue a career in this field.
Pharmacology teaching: You might also choose to work at a university, college lecture theatre or laboratory – sharing what you've learned with the next generation.
