Graduate Student Education: A Statement of Departmental Philosophy
The Department of Pharmacology is dedicated to the attainment of two major goals in
the education and training of its graduate students:
- to teach the student how to perform scientific research in a sound, creative; and
- to teach the student the art of cogent and skillful scientific communication. To accomplish
these particular goals, the Department is committed to providing a challenging and
stimulating environment for its students, one in which each student can realize his
or her full scientific potential in Pharmacology. Specific steps in the implementation
of the departmental graduate program are described below under the areas of research,
scientific communication, and course work.
All requirements for the individual graduate degrees (M.S., M.D./Ph.D., Ph.D.) follow
the requirements of the TTUHSC Graduate Program. The general requirements for those
Programs are outlined in the TTU Graduate catalogue. The department follows the rules
and regulations of graduate studies (i.e. grade point average, etc.) of the TTU Graduate
School. Those rules are outlined in the TTU Graduate Catalogue. Requirements for the
thesis and dissertation style are defined by the TTU Graduate School.
