A Unique Program in a Strategic LocationChapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) offers a 2-year, year-round thesis Master of Science in the Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSPS) for students interested in a broad range of scientific disciplines critical to the discovery and development of new drugs and therapies.
Graduates of the program can pursue a variety of career opportunities in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. A number of pharmaceutical, biomedical, and medical device companies are located both in and around the Irvine Rinker Health Science Campus where CUSP is located in Orange County, California. Company leaders indicate significant employment opportunities for MSPS graduates, based on their personal needs. Also, graduates are positioned to work as researchers at universities, for agencies like the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which also has a large office in Orange County, U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP), and at national laboratories such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
