Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Our Mission is to educate and mentor students who advance the profession of pharmacy and pharmaceutical research to improve health outcomes of patients and their communities.
The vision of the Duquesne University Mylan School of Pharmacy and Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences is to develop professionals, through student-centered experiences, who are recognized leaders, innovators and advocates in all areas of pharmacy practice and research.
The GSPS was established in 1990 when the MSP Pharmaceutical Sciences faculty requested and were granted permission to separate from the reorganized College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The rationale for the request was to focus our efforts in achieving the mission of the Mylan School of Pharmacy (MSP). GSPS offerings currently encompass the Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science degrees in pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, and pharmacology, and the Master of Science in Pharmacy Administration.
