Master of Science in drug sciences

The University of Basel MSc in Toxicology and the MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences are being replaced by the new MSc in Drug Sciences. This new Master study programme provides theoretical and practical training in the discovery, development, efficacy and safety of substances with a main focus on drugs/medicines. It is focused on a future career in industrial or academic research, product development or regulatory affairs. The appropriate choice of elective subjects provides the theoretical basis for later certification as professional toxicologist. 

The next MSc in Drug Sciences programme starts in September 2017

  • The programme includes two semesters of theoretical and practical courses on fundamentals/general skills, drug discovery and development, pharmacology and toxicology.
  • The 3rd and 4th semesters are dedicated to the master thesis. 
  • All courses are held in English.
  • To be admitted, you must have completed a Bachelor in Pharmaceutical Sciences or equivalent discipline.
