Program Details

Michigan State University offers an online program for students to earn a Professional Science Masters in Integrative Pharmacology. This program is designed to train students in whole-animal and organ systems-level pharmacology as well as developed business skills. Those with previous professional experience in laboratory research, biology, or chemistry will benefit the most from this program.

The required courses for this program are Principles of Drug-Tissue Interaction, Experimental Design & Data Analysis, Applied Integrative Pharmacology Lab, and Applied Project in Integrative Pharmacology. The Applied Integrative Pharmacology Lab is a hybrid course, and is a week-long, on campus laboratory training course, with an online component. 12 credits in science electives as well as a minimum of six credits in professional electives are also required.

The Applied Project in Integrative Pharmacology is a course that is completed as an on-the-job capstone research project. In addition to the project, students must also produce a final paper that is suitable for publishing.

MSU will use a computer system called ANGEL as a primary learning management system. Faculty will post animations, audio clips, online library material, practice activities, discussion boards, and quizzes through ANGEL.

Students are expected to participate by asking questions and involving themselves in class discussions. Individuals can connect with classmates through chat, telephone, email, or discussion forums. While courses can be accessed at any time, instructors may offer live group discussion as extra credit or a voluntary activity.

This degree is designed to accommodate part-time students as well as full-time individuals. Students must complete this program within 5 years. However, exceptions can be made for special circumstances.


Students must have completed a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, with at least 3 credits in chemistry and 3 credits in a biological science.
