Students in Thesis Track will complete the program in two years of four semesters (2x Fall and 2x Spring) and a total of 31 credits. In addition to the didactic coursework, the students will go through hands-on laboratory research in the field of pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences throughout the whole program. Students in this track must successfully complete and defend (through an oral presentation) a thesis project. Students will choose their research topics and supervisors after laboratory rotations in the first semester. The thesis project will exam the students’ capabilities in original article review, research design, research execution, statistics, result analysis, discussion, and written and communication skills. A thesis committee will be assembled and assigned to each student. The committee will be responsible to guide, review and evaluate the thesis project.
Total cost for the 2-Year Thesis Track = $72,120.00
