PhD Program in Pharmaceutics

The Doctor of Philosophy degree is considered the most accomplished academic achievement an individual can attain in preparation for a career of creative scholarship. It is the highest degree conferred by our universities and, by nature and tradition, it is a research degree. It is not conferred merely as a certificate to a prescribed course of study. Every department offering a Ph.D. degree has the responsibility to assure that the degree will be granted only to candidates who have demonstrated present capacity and future promise to be an independent and creative thinker.
