Your Career: What Can I Do with My Degree?

Your master’s from UBC Pharm Sci opens the door to a broad spectrum of fulfilling career opportunities—in industry, government, academia, and in the other health professions.
 

Where Your Degree Can Take You

A master's in pharmaceutical sciences is a launching pad to success in countless fields. As just a handful of examples, our grads have gone on to: fine-tune treatments for diseases like tuberculosis; lecture internationally about female contraceptives; study the regulation of cardiac metabolism following diabetes; optimize medication dosages for organ transplantation; and improve mental health outcomes through better understanding antipsychotics.

The possibilities are limitless with a UBC graduate degree in pharmaceutical sciences. You might consult for physicians. You might work in research and quality control, or as an administrator in a hospital or government setting. Maybe you'll consult on drug products, or health policy. Or maybe you'll find your place in teaching, mentoring and developing up-and-coming leaders in the field.
